Happy International Women's Day to all our readers. If anyone asks why we need a day (or why men don't have a day), send them in the direction of the #metoo and #timesup campaigns and explain that still in many countries (including the UK) women aren't afforded the same rights or pay as their male counterparts. Let's make sure that the next generation doesn't have to experience inequality – thankfully there are plenty of children's books celebrating the amazing achievements of women over the years. Here are a few of our favourites. Enjoy!
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2 by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo (Timbuktu Labs, RRP £25).
The much-anticipated sequel is here with women as diverse as Boudicca and Beyonce, Ruby Bridges and Rosalind Franklin.
