Where are all the important women in history? Did they ever exist? Why did it take so many books about important women for us to learn their stories? And where did it all begin? On Sunday, April 2, Elena Favilli, author of Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls, talks with Stella Kasdagli, author of 30 Women Who Changed the World, about female role models, girl empowerment, gender equality and how books can really change the world.
