From ground-breaking scientist Marie Curie to political activist Malala Yousafzai, from feminist author Virginia Woolf to the game-changing Billie Jean King; I Know a Woman creates a gigantic web of womanhood which celebrates the relationships between the world's most inspirational and influential women.

Threading tales from across the globe and throughout history, the lives of innovative aviatrixes, gun-toting revolutionaries and women with incomparable intellects are revealed. Each woman is connected to the next, discovering the women behind the scenes; those who didn't get the credit for scientific discoveries, sporting achievements or acts of bravery when they were alive. Some names will be familiar, some might not but all are equally important.

With compelling story-telling and beautifully illustrated portraits, I Know a Woman is bold and engaging with a unique purpose: to uncover the links between 84 pioneering women and show the indomitable strength of womankind.

Contents includes: Michelle Obama; Alice Walker; Gala Dali; Emma Watson; Nina Simone; Beryl Burton; Frida Kahlo; Coco Chanel; Serena Williams; Greta Garbo
Eleanor Roosevelt; Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie; Boudicea; Ching Shih
