The Bologna Ragazzi Award 2019

Special Mention for Women in Battle

Marta Breen and Jenny Jordahl´s Woman in Battle have so far been sold to 22 territories. Now the book has received a special mention from The Bologna Ragazzi Award 2019!

The jury says: This graphic novel presents a history of women’s contribution to the battle for human rights. The chapters spotlight individual and collective struggles around the world in different time periods, from Harriet Tubman and Rosa Luxemburg through to Malala. The author uses bold black outlines and differentiates the stories with single, distinct background colours. The graphic form and writing style – the work of an artistic duo - combine beautifully to depict the small moments that made up the big picture of women’s history.

 

We congratulate Marta Breen and Jenny Jordahl - and all their publishers around the globe!
