In the words of author, host, and spoken word artist Babs Gons, and picturesque illustrations by Femme ter Haar, the book tells the stories of 20 heroines who give and have given colour to the Dutch Kingdom. These heroines show us how dreams can come true because they believed in themselves and persevered when times were difficult. Because they inspire others to follow their dreams too. They all dreamed, because that’s how it starts, with a dream.

Heroines! has partnered with Herstory, a cultural movement that tells the stories of mythic, modern and historic women.

Together we’re creating a series of books for young girls in every country that will share the untold stories of local women and their extraordinary accomplishments. All the books will launch with supporting lesson plans for schools. Already there are books in development in Belgium, Denmark, Ghana, Nepal, The Netherlands, Qatar, Singapore and Ireland. Stay tuned for more exciting news from the Heroines! + Herstory collaboration.
