Amazons, Abolitionists, And Activists – Mikki Kendall And Anna D’Amico | A Book Review

Title: Amazons, Abolitionists, and Activists: A Graphic History of Women’s Fight for Their Rights

Author: Mikki Kendall

Artist: Anna D’Amico

Genre: Non-fiction (History)

About the book: It’s a graphic novel, exploring the history of women’s rights, starting from the past and concluding at the present.

I received an advanced review copy from Penguin Random House in exchange for an honest review.

First impressions: I enjoy reading about history, so I couldn’t wait to delve into this book. I like the alliteration in the title, and it also gives readers an idea of what the book is about.

Content: I love the illustrations. The colours are beautiful and they complement the text. Both the author and artist are extremely talented.

Quote:

“How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give himself up individually to a righteous cause?”

Writing: I think there’s a great balance of words and pictures. Learning more about the issues women faced around the world put a lot of things into perspective for me. It’s such an eye-opening, educational read at less than 200 pages.

Final thoughts: I highly recommend Amazons, Abolitionists, and Activists: A Graphic History of Women’s Fight for Their Rights to just about everyone.

  1. Gotta’ get this one to go with the Wonder Woman graphic novel one of my students gave me for my birthday. I had the student sign and date the book as a souvenir of when she was in my class. I had told the class I grew up reading Wonder Woman comics, and she thought of the special BD gift.
