Strong Women and Girls Help Make the World Go Round Strong Women and Girls Help Make the World Go Round
Exhibition Creator(s) - Roshin Mathew
It is important to celebrate our heroes and heroines. We sometimes reward men for being independent, strong, and opinionated, but often women and girls who exhibit the same attributes are seen in a different light. The books in this exhibition feature girls and women from all over the world who are strong, smart, brave, and proud, and they are rewarded for demonstrating these attributes. The characters in these stories use cooperation, resourcefulness, and imagination to solve problems. They meet their challenges and find hope and strength in their situations. These books encourage young girls to be anything they want to be.
