Young girls and women are uniting across the world to create change, have their voices heard and stand up for what they believe in.
In this bold and brilliantly inspiring book, Lauren Sharkey profiles the powerful stories and achievements of 52 young campaigners, who are working to improve the lives of people across the globe.

Yet whether it be Twitter campaigns or life-saving apps, their great ideas are all changing the world as we know it.
Illustrated by Manjit Thapp, this is a must-have for young women who would like to dare to make a difference and become empowered to be the change.
