About the Book



There's history as it's told, and then there's history as it actually happened. You may think you know the stories behind the world's most well-known, groundbreaking achievements, but To Her Credit is here to make you reevaluate our collective story as it has been written. This book celebrates the stories of women, from ancient times until the 1990s, whose contributions have been overwritten and, far too often, accredited to men.



Book Synopsis



There's history as it's told, and then there's history as it actually happened. You may think you know the stories behind the world's most well-known, groundbreaking achievements, but To Her Credit is here to make you reevaluate our collective story as it has been written. This book celebrates the stories of women, from ancient times until the 1990s, whose contributions have been overwritten and, far too often, accredited to men.

The pattern of female achievements being stolen, overwritten, or straight-up ignored is as old as time. Authors Kaitlin Culmo and Emily McDermott--with stunning art by Kezia Gabriella--reclaim the work of these deserving heroines and offer reminders of what we lose when we don't question history as it has been written.

  • We're often told that Cervantes "invented fiction" with the novel Don Quixote in 17th century Europe, but what about Lady Murasaki's The Tale of Genji in 11th-century Japan?
  • Elvis Presley is widely considered as "The King" and--for all intents and purposes--the inventor of rock and roll music. But what about Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who was the first to engineer the rock and roll sound, or Big Mama Thornton, for whom the song "Hound Dog" was explicitly written?
  • Albert Einstein is a household name and so too is his famed equation E = mc2. But what about his first wife, Mileva Maric, who not only helped with the Nobel Prize-winning discovery, but also collaborated with Albert throughout the pivotal early years of his career?


This book tells the stories of women who have been left out of history's accolades. It's time to talk about the thousands of years' worth of art, inventions, innovations, and world-changing achievements made by women that have been ascribed to men.



Review Quotes




With references, notes and an index, plus beautiful illustrations, this book would be perfect for high school or first- or second-year college students seeking a well-rounded view of history. An inspiring read. - Library Journal

I purchased this book after reading. Good night rebel girls to my goddaughter (age 9). Not only was each individual story well crafted the illustrations made it fabulous for reading to young impressionable girls. The authors did a great job sharing stories that history has forgotten. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who knows a young girl.
