Beskrivelse

Tweens & Teens Edition. BEATRICE SHILLING A GIRL WITH GRIT! Beatrice and Jessica were born 100 years apart in the same town only a few miles from each other. Beatrice was determined to succeed in a man's world: racing bikes and cars were her passion - but it was her expertise in engineering that saved our Spitfire and Hurricane pilots from death and injury in World War II. Science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) were not considered occupations for females in Beatrice's day, but the territory of men. Have opinions changed in 2021?Jessica has the same 'I can do it' spirit and sheer determination: loves STEM and admires Beatrice immensely. She dances, sings and models for fashion shoots, undertakes acting roles and adores water sports. Musical theatre is in her blood, but like Beatrice, she has a passion for bikes! Nortons in particular! Obstacles proliferate. Difficult decisions need to be made. Both girls do not accept that men are better than females, or have more intelligence; nor are they a superior race..Gender equality was sought in the 1900s and still is today in 2021. How long do we have to wait for it? Jessica narrates the book with a few wise words and reminders from Grandma thrown in. Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle .Christian D Larson
