Strong Like Her : A Celebration of Rule Breakers, History Makers, and Unstoppable Athletes
by Haley Shapley and Sophy Holland




Overview -
Beautiful and powerful, Strong Like Her presents the awe-inspiring account of women's athleticism throughout history.

Journalist Haley Shapley takes us through the delightful untold history of female strength to understand how we can better encourage--and celebrate--the physical power of women.

Part group biography, part cultural history, Strong Like Her delves into the fascinating stories of our muscular foremothers. From the first female Olympian (who entered the chariot race through a loophole) to the circus stars who could lift their husbands above their heads and make it look like "a little light housework with a feather duster," these brave and brawny women paved the way for the generations to follow.

Filled with Sophy Holland's beautiful por-traits of some of today's most awe-inspiring ath-letes, including Peloton instructor Robin Arz n, bodybuilder Dana Linn Bailey, actress/dancer Patina Miller, and many others, Strong Like Her celebrates strength in all its forms. Illuminating the lives and accomplish-ments of storied female sports stars--whose con-tributions to society go far beyond their entries in record books--Shapley challenges us to rethink everything we thought we knew about the power of women.
