Sheroes: Female Role Models Throughout History

Inspired by the book Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls, this program highlights famous women and girls all over the world-- from suffragettes, boxers, painters, scientists,  directors, and more! The scope of female representation in STEM, the humanities, politics, and sports of past and present day will be covered. Girls have the chance to be the shero of their own story with a blank book and fun embellishments.
