While I may be a full-time project manager and editor at Atlantic, I somehow still find time to write my own material. This time last year, I pitched a young adult series idea to Doug Brown, the owner of the company. Not only did he love my idea, but he suggested that I write the first in the series. Over a year later, after countless hours of research, procrastination, and marathon writing sessions, I present to you “Hidden in History: The Untold Stories of Female Revolutionaries and Activists”.
History is written by the victors — and usually the men. While it may be easy to name plenty of heroic male figures in history, unfortunately, the mind often comes to a screeching halt when contemplating the women who played a role in the major moments of our human history. This is not because they sat at home, idly waiting for the men to cut a path to the future, but because their own blazing trail has been “Hidden in History”. No longer overlooked and forgotten, “Hidden in History: The Untold Stories of Female Revolutionaries and Activists” brings some of the most valiant women of history to the forefront and tells their stories with rich detail and proper acknowledgement. Follow Constance Markievicz through the Irish fight for independence; hear the untold story of the Grimke sisters’ struggle for women’s equality in the Antebellum South; admire Rigoberta Menchú’s passion and dedication to changing the constant state of prejudice and degradation towards Guatemala’s indigenous peoples. These are only a few of the incredible heroines whose epic tales unfold within these pages. Women all over the world have been invaluable to efforts towards betterment and justice, only to be disregarded. No longer will the female narratives be left out of history – these are just some of the stories of the many female victors.
The title is available on Amazon in both paperback and e-book formats. For a limited time, the e-book will be available for only 99 cents!
Be on the lookout for other titles in the series, including “Hidden in History: The Untold Stories of Female Civil Rights Activists”, “Hidden in History: The Untold Stories of Female Athletes”, and “Hidden in History: The Untold Stories of Female Artists, Musicians, and Writers” coming soon!
