Today marks a very important day to celebrate all the amazing female figures in our lives. International Women’s Day is a day to also look back at all the awe-inspiring women who have paved the way for all of us to continue breaking the glass ceiling. We decided to collaborate with an amazing local business, 7adoota Book Club, to give you this list of books about important female figures in history to read to your kids today.

Driven by their passion for reading, two women founded 7adoota Book Club to spread the love of reading among the coming generations. Their storytelling skills, selective choices of books, and their out-of-the-box ideas guarantee that children get exposed to values that they’d cherish for a lifetime.
