Book Recommendation: Women In Battle by Marta Breen and Jenny Jordahl

Happy International Women’s Day! I’d like to take a moment to just shortly recommend a very theme appropriate comic book to read on this day. These days I rarely read comics, and Women In Battle really reminded me how powerful comic books can be. This book was awarded by Norway’s Ministry of Culture as the best nonfiction book of 2018 ,which is awesome, and sends a powerful message on the importance of the topic of equality.

Women In Battle tells several real life stories of women who fought for freedom and equality. Some of them might be more familiar ones but some were certainly ones I had not heard of. I really enjoyed the artwork which was both funny and also very, very touching. ❤ Big recommendation to read this book and be inspired of all the hard work that has been done, and be reminded of the hard work that is still needed as we keep fighting for gender equality.

Women In Battle fills these prompts from the two Reading Challenges I’m doing this year:

A book where the world is changing (Helmet Reading Challenge)
A book about a social justice issue (Popsugar Reading Challenge)

Author:

I love books, games and the coziness of our house (currently it's the kingdom of me and my husband). My work in a game studio as a Senior HR Specialist keeps me busy and social, but I am an introvert in my core. Navigating life between my very social work and my introvert, less social personality can be tricky and it goes hand in hand with my interest in overall personal well-being.
