An inspiring and radical celebration of 70 women, girls, and gender nonbinary people who have changed-and are still changing-the world, from the Civil Rights Movement and Stonewall riots through Black Lives Matter and beyond. With a radical and inclusive approach to history, Modern HERstory profiles and celebrates seventy women and nonbinary champions of progressive social change in a bold audiobook for all ages. Despite making huge contributions to the liberation movements of the last century and today, all of these trailblazers come from backgrounds and communities that are traditionally overlooked and under-celebrated: not just women, but people of color, queer people, trans people, disabled people, young people, and people of faith. Authored by rising star activist Blair Imani, Modern HERstory tells the important stories of the leaders and movements that are changing the world right here and right now-and will inspire you to do the same.

Professional reviews

"January LaVoy narrates Blair Imani's compilation of the life and times of a diverse collection of women and nonbinary leaders who identify as LGBTQ, racially and religiously diverse, handicapped, and disadvantaged. LaVoy's steady narration is minimally emotional, perfect for the short sketches of these 60 leaders of progressive social change. LaVoy voices the few direct quotes in a warm, inviting way, and definitions of the terminology that pertain to LGBTQ persons enlighten listeners to the diverse new vocabulary that describes identity. Imani's selection of subjects breaks down stereotypes and established definitions of gender. Each biographical sketch highlights the accomplishments of famous, infamous, and little known persons from the last half of the twentieth and into the twenty-first century.
