“Fearless Girls, Wise Women & Beloved Sisters: Heroines in Folktales from Around the World”
This book post is also to kick off my new section on women in herstory.
This was a wonderful book. It offers so many stories almost all of which were new for me about the ingenuity, courage and strength of women or girls. This book is the hard work of a mother’s quest to find out where did all the tales of women go? This book by Ragan is the response to how women and girls of the past handled and overcame challenges.
It is an enlightening and inspiring book to be read again and again. This book calls to all women and girls from around the globe to be strong and use their inner strength. This book is not downgrade men but corrects the (purposeful) lack of strong female stories, in the world’s cultural heritage that have been removed.
In the world today with more women on the rise in positions of power, running for office or just handling the daily in’s and outs that society gives them, this book is for you ladies. Plus it makes up for the lack of interesting kid reading on had in one’s childhood.
The book has the stories broken down by places like Tales from Asia for example and then lists all the works therein. In parenthesis the particular region is listed for a tribe.
