TEEN TRAILBLAZERS tells the stories of 30 awe-inspiring young women, from authors to activists, painters to politicians, inventors to icons. These pioneers are proof that every girl has the power to speak up, to speak out, to innovate, to inspire, to ask questions, and to challenge injustice. Each of these young women was “just a girl” until the day she wasn’t anymore—until she became a trailblazer.
