In a book written by Sam Maggs and illustrated by Sophia Foster-Dimino, “Wonder Women” tells many unique, edge-of-your-seat, and incredible stories of powerful women in history who set the precedent for women generations after their triumphs to remain strong in the face of adversity and to always fight for your right to be heard as well as seen.
