But have you heard about Yusra Mardini, a Syrian refugee who swam a sinking boat to shore, saved twenty lives, then went on to compete as an Olympic swimmer? Or Trisha Prabhu, who invented an anti-cyberbullying app at age 13? Or Barbara Rose Johns, whose high school protest helped spark the civil rights movement? InRad Girls Can, you'll learn about a diverse group of young women who are living rad lives, whether excelling in male-dominated sports like boxing, rock climbing, or skateboarding; speaking out against injustice and discrimination; expressing themselves through dance, writing, and music; or advocating for girls around the world.

Rad Girls Can features both historical and current figures and is packed full of information about a variety of girls who are very inspiring. The girls included in this book are a mixture of well known figures like Jazz Jennings and Anne Frank along with less known figures like Yusra Mardini and Barbara Rose Johns.
