Praise for the book:

Kate Mosse in The Guardian (21 May 2022): “what better book to bring people together than one that celebrates the extraordinary achievements of women of the past, as a reminder of what is possible in the present? On This Day She … began life as a social media campaign, started by Bell, Hershman and Holland, after Holland had been given a calendar of historical events and realised that women were barely mentioned. This is a joyous and celebratory tribute to all those who battled to be heard, who fought for their achievements to be recognised and honoured, who simply kept going.”
Ginny Carter (Amazon): “Brilliantly inspiring: I expected to enjoy learning about women I’d never heard of and their amazing achievements, but what I didn’t expect was how inspired I would feel. If you want to unleash your inner superwoman, this is the book for you.”

Jacki Wilkes (Amazon):It is the best way to start the day, 5 mins is all it takes to be inspired by this gem of a book and all its female (often unsung) heroines and other remarkable women many of whom would be unknown or forgotten. An absolute must have!

Bean (Amazon):This is not just a book. This is a weighty historical document that should be read by everyone!
