Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls

Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo, the creators of Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls (2016), wished to address the lack of strong female role models in children’s literature. They noticed how books and popular media were full of gender stereotypes, which they felt they could challenge with their book.

Favilli and Cavallo crowdfunded their project and ended up raising over a million dollars. The result is an illustrated book featuring the stories of 100 women who have made a mark in their respective fields, be it literature or politics, sports or science. These women are “rebels” because they challenged stereotypes, overcame odds of all sorts, and didn’t take “No” for an answer.
