Revolutionary Women is successful in its project of creating images of intriguing women in the fashion of Che Guevara’s iconic stencil while also providing brief biographies. This book has a refreshingly global representation of women from different countries and cultures, and with different revolutionary tactics and philosophies. The biographies include very minimal background information, but such brevity allows the courage of these thirty women to be highlighted regardless of the causes for which they fought. ( )
