Are you fearless? Fearlessness can be many things: speaking up against wrong, rescuing lives or inspiring a new way of thinking. In Goodnight Golda: a handbook for brave Jewish girls and her mighty friends, author Batya Bricker takes us around the world – including Ethiopia, Israel, Poland, Portugal, the US and right here in the UK – with inspiring stories and cool illustrations of 32 Jewish women who rock!

From Queen Ester to Ruth Bader Ginsburg via Anne Frank, DKNY designer Donna Karen and many more, Batya joins us to show girls, boys and their grown-ups how these heroines changed their world and ours!
