Welcome to the Girls Can Blog Tour!
To close out Women’s History Month, please join us for a week-long celebration of extraordinary women and their remarkable accomplishments, drive and tenacity. Each stop along the tour will feature fascinating insights from the talented trio of female authors behind National Geographic Kids’ Girls Can!, as well as profiles and interviews with groundbreaking women around the world and across time.
Literature & Arts
Author Q&A: Who do you think is the least known heroine / who are you most excited to bring to light?
Paige: For me, it’s Enheduanna–the fact that the world’s oldest known author is a woman is incredible.
Tora: Trans women are often left out of conversations, so I was elated to celebrate the work of Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera.
Mars: I’m most excited to have people learn about Yaa Asantewaa, a literal queen who led the movement for independence in Ghana.
