O movimento feminista em quadrinhos, para jovens e adultos. Há 150 anos, a vida das mulheres era muito diferente: elas não podiam tomar decisões sobre seu corpo, votar ou ganhar o próprio dinheiro. Quando nasciam, os pais estavam no comando; depois, os maridos. O cenário só começou a mudar quando elas passaram a se organizar e a lutar por liberdade e igualdade. Neste livro ...more

Engaging and wonderful. Love the artwork and the use of color.

Wow. This was powerful, and sometimes made me tear up, or grin like an idiot with all of these rioting women ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊ I'm glad that it was intersectional, and mentioned a lot of women, but also the issues of LGBTQAIP+ people and poc. I missed Rosa Parks or Maya Angelou from it, but there is limited pages, and a lot more women to talk about, but in my opinion, they're really important ...more

Such a great reference for an introduction to feminism. Really insightful and well executed both in terms of information and aesthetic.

This was a light, fun, really entertaining and educational read and in my opinion: a good introduction to feminism! One of my favourite parts of this graphic novel (?) was that it told the stories of different women of different backgrounds and didn't only center around the white population of the united states and the united kingdom like some similar books often do. I would definitely recommend this graphic novel to everyone who is interested in the movement and it's origins! ...more

Woo wee!

Written as a graphic novel, ‘Women in Battle’ is the story of Feminism, equality and gay rights.

Beautifully and succinctly crafted this is a gorgeous book - for the right age group - definitely +13 yrs. Don’t assume all graphic novels are for kids.

Australian publisher’s website:
This graphic novel about the feminist movement was absolutely delightful. Sure, it was abbreviated in many instances because more than 150 years of history couldn't fit into 120 pages. So what? It gives a decent overview, picking put different feminist icons throughout the years. They authors tried to be as intersectional as possible which I greatly appreciate. I would have loved if we had studied something like this in school. ...more

This is great way to teach everyone about feminism and the equality struggle! I love how they captured not only white history as well, its so important to get the full story!

Mari - loves to read
First things first, this wonderful book is translated into 20 languages. The English edition is called Women in Battle, go look it up!

This is an illustrated short version of the world's feminist movement from the 1800's till this day. I'm impressed by how Marta Breen can compress 150 years of battle for rights for women into this quick read and still leave the reader feeling that this book is so important. This book ought to be used in education, to let all young people see this part of the fem

*2019 - 4,5 stars*

Women in Battle was my first graphic novel. It was a good quick read.

This graphic novel is really important. Everything in this book should be known for not only every woman but men too.
It describes a lot of the most important moments in women's history in an easy way. Because of the format everyone can gain a lot of important information. And it takes less than a few hours.

My only issue was that I would like to get more story within it. But at least it made me want to reach
“Slowly but surely we are making progress. We need only dare to be heard.”

This should be read by everyone, of every gender, race and age! I believe information and education are the way forward. They create empathy, they free ourselves of our own ignorance and pettiness.

I have come across so many women that firmly believe that they don't need feminism and that it doesn't represent them... It is clear to me that they don´t understand the struggles of the ones who came before them and carved their
This unapologetically feminist graphic novel walks through some of the greatest challenges against, accomplishments for, and icons of women’s equality. Overall, it’s a solid read with a simple but engaging style, and any portrait of incredible women throughout history is always a welcome one. However, the overall purpose and intended age remained vague, which is unfortunately what kept this book from being a home run.

It’s challenging to not compare Females with Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked th
An excellent introduction to the history of feminism around the world made more appealing for the young readers because of the graphic novel aspect. This can easily be read in one sitting as it's fairly short and thus a fast read. It was interesting to see that the author decided to start and end the book with Muslims.

The book is divided into 'chapters' chronologically and by events. She goes through the three 'waves' of feminism starting in the 1800's in Iran, then Europe and America. She mainl

“If men use bombs for their own purpose they call it war and it is described as a heroic deed. Why should a woman not use the same weapons as men? It is not only war we have declared - we are fighting for a revolution!”

Women in Battle is an engaging and beautiful graphic novel detailing the numerous struggles women have faced through history.
Focusing on major women’s movements and highlighting the changes some, but not all, countries have seen over the last 150 years the book brings a spotligh
This was a nice little in-between read about what and how women have done over the past 150 years to get things improved. A bit about voting rights, a bit about general right to exist as a person, some stuff about slavery and underground railroads, some stuff about women getting to work. In general, a bit of everything, which was also the problem. This graphic novel tried to cover so many things it mostly managed to scratch the surface and I was left wanting to know more about certain things. Ho ...more

This is an engaging, accessible and great overview of how women have fought for their rights. The three most important causes are the 'Right to Education and Careers' which looks at the contributions of women such as Malala. The 'Right to Vote' which obviously looks at the suffragettes and the 'Right to Bodily Integrity' with Margaret Sanger (1879-1966) who I knew least about. She believed that ' No women can call herself free who does not own and control her body' and she helped women get acces ...more

I read the English language translation ('Women in Battle') and I thought it was a really good introduction to the issues that feminists have taken on in the past and are still taking on today. It would make a great 'introduction to feminism' for young women, but I also learnt things from it that I hadn't known before. My only reservation is that it's quite graphic in parts (no pun intended), I'm not sure what audience they're aiming at but I'd assumed it was for the teen market so some of the g ...more
A really well drawn/laid out exploration into some of the history of feminism. Introducing a wide range of women who helped lead change in their societies, leaving ripples running forward for others to launch a new wave. Looking at the links in equality of the sexes and the Civil Rights movement, right up to modern day LGBT* equality movement.

This is often a sad and hard hitting read as you read the personal stories of struggle (and not always success, unfortunately) but overall the power of per

Slowly but surely we are making progress. We need only dare to be heard.

This is an fantastic book depicting women’s fight for freedom and equality. The writing and illustrations are perfect. It’s well balanced between being funny and shocking but always informative. There were a couple of ladies I hadn’t heard of before too which I always enjoy.

Everyone of all ages should read this. Brilliant.
Great introduction to feminism, highlighting key figures without feeling like chunky biographies and flowing nicely through the movements. I definitely need to read more on the history because I learned a thing or two. I loved the snark but would also recommend it more for older kids and teens due to the humor (unless your kid is fully fluent in sarcasm). While race and class are mentioned, I do wish a section had been devoted more explicitly to intersectionality.
On the whole I quite liked this one, I liked the artistic style and it gave a reasonable summary of some of the feminist movements. The flow felt a bit odd as it was the feminist waves in consecutive order and then went off into LGBTQ+ movements and Malala and then ended! I also felt the LGBTQ+ section seemed to spend most of the time talking about gay men and the restrictions placed on them, and less about LGBTQ women

This was... okay. I think it was presented in a very disjointed format, though, which made it confusing. There wasn't a good flow between the various individuals and historical moments that were introduced, and a lot of sections ended so abruptly that there were multiple times I had to double check to make sure I hadn't skipped a page. The illustrations were cute though - I especially enjoyed all the confused men! ...more

Beautiful illustrations and humor. Was under the Young Readers ages 9-12 section so you know that much of the information was dumbed down. Even so, it is a great read for anyone who wants a quick recap of the continuous struggle for women's rights. It really is sad to realize that there are three simple goals but in more than 150 years, they are still not inherent and ubiquitous. Fast read. ...more
