Strong Like Her

by Haley Shapley

This stirring and vibrant account of women's athleticism throughout history "will leave readers feeling inspired and powerful" (Ms. magazine).

Part group biography, part cultural history, Strong Like Her delves into the fascinating stories of our muscular foremothers. From the first female Olympian (who entered the chariot race through a loophole) to the circus stars who could lift their husbands above their heads and make it look like "a little light housework with a feather duster," these brave and brawny women paved the way for the generations to follow.

Filled with Sophy Holland's beautiful por traits of some of today's most awe-inspiring ath letes, including Peloton instructor Robin Arzon, bodybuilder Dana Linn Bailey, actress/dancer Patina Miller, and many others, Strong Like Her is "a love letter to muscles and the women who rock them so gloriously" (Shape).
