Think about it, how many women do you really find in the history books? Not nearly enough, that's for sure.

So one artist decided enough is enough.

One artist wrote a children's book about a little girl going on a journey through time where she meets women like scientist Marie Curie, feminist champion Emmeline Pankhurst and of course Malala Yousafzai.

No kid should go without knowing about them.

Marie Curie; incredible scientist and two time Nobel prize winner... Of course kids need to know all about her!

Here is one of the illustrations from the book, where the little protagonist drops by Marie Curie's lab.

It is so important for girls and boys alike to see that there are role models of all genders who can inspire them to dream bigger.

Like this little girl. Is this the best Halloween costume or what?

History has seen so many contributions made by women, and it's time kid's know about them from an early age.
