The Women Who Made Me a Feminist
(Usborne Publishing, March 8, 2018)
A collection of essays on incredible historical, contemporary and fictional women who inspired author Matt Killeen to become a feminist and create his own feminist hero in debut novel Orphan Monster Spy. From WWII secret agent Violette Szabo to Katniss Everdeen, star of The Hunger Games, Crimean War nurse Mary Secole, physicist Lise Meitner, musician Alanis Morissette and more, their stories are eye-opening and empowering. Powerful, fascinating and thought-provoking, these essays are released to celebrate International Women’s Day and the publication of Orphan Monster Spy – a debut WWII spy thriller featuring a brand-new female hero who readers are calling ‘unforgettable’, ‘kick-ass’, ‘awesome’, ‘empowering’, ‘daring’, ‘compelling’ and ‘unyielding’.
