Kathy MacMillan (@kathys_quill), Manuela Bernardi (@the_mahnoo), and Kathrin Honesta share SHE SPOKE: 14 Women Who Raised Their Voices and Changed the World. SHE SPOKE incorporates historical recordings from women throughout history, making history through their words, ideas, and actions. And the collaboration all started 15 years ago over some Harry Potter fan fiction. A critical point my guests return to over and over is that their subjects each had someone who believed in them. When designing a book to inspire and empower young people, this is something that was kept in mind: the ability to see and to name that person in your life who believes in you. This is sometimes easier said than done, but it’s something we as adults in the lives the these young people can work to secure in and throughout their lives. I think this conversation is really going to stick with you. You can access even more information about this book and its author and illustrator by visiting
