GOOD NIGHT STORIES FOR REBEL GIRLS: 100 Immigrant Women Who Changed the World shares the stories of women who left their birth countries for a multitude of reasons: some for new opportunities, some out of necessity, such as singers Rihanna and Gloria Estefan, politicians Madeleine Albright and Ilhan Omar, chef Asma Khan, and actress Lupita Nyong’o.
This title is the third in the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls series, which was the most successful publishing crowdfunding campaign in history. The print editions of the first two print books are New York Times bestsellers, with more than 5.5 million copies sold worldwide.
Listeners can also hear expanded stories on the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls podcast, which returns with selected stories drawn from their new book, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Immigrant Women Who Changed the World.
