My daughter is 8 years old and I find that a great age to open up discussions with her on strong female role models; what that means and how she can be empowered to be or do anything she wants when she “grows up.” It’s never too early to instill confidence, courage and a positive mind-set in young girls that they can run the world (if they choose). Here are some of our favorite books highlighting fierce females from past, present (and fiction) with the resounding message that the “future is female.”

Which are your favorite books that show off empowering females?
