Be part of a project to inspire girls all over Wales!

A Welsh author is launching a search for girls’ names to appear in print in her forthcoming book celebrating inspiring women from Wales. Medi Jones-Jackson is asking for the names of would-be wondrous women aged 7-11 as part of her new project. The aim is to collect as many names as possible to print in her new book Wondrous Women of Wales, which will be published this June by Y Lolfa.

Wondrous Women of Wales is aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 11 and celebrates the lives of 26 lively and inspirational women from Wales. The women featured are from many different walks of life and periods, with several that are still working today, such as Shirley Bassey, Hayley Gomez and Jade Jones. Historical figures in the book include Gwendoline and Mary Davies and Frances Hoggan. Each wondrous woman has made a name for herself in her own field – music, literature, history, astronomy, science, art, sports and more.

The stories are brought to life with lots of fun facts, colourful and a lively design, with follow-up puzzles and activities at the back of the book for young readers to enjoy.

The names of girls from all over Wales will appear as a pattern on the book’s endpapers, and the author is asking people to send her names. Medi says: 
“This is a rare chance to get your daughter/granddaughter/niece’s name printed in a book. Wondrous Women of Wales is a great introduction to some of Wales’s foremost women and hopefully will inspire little girls all over Wales. What better way to start that journey than by having their name printed in the book?” 

If you know of a would-be wondrous woman between the ages of 7 and 11, and you’d like to see her name in print in this beautiful book, contact Medi Jones-Jackson directly by e-mailing [email protected] before Monday 23rd May 2022, and note the full name of the girl. There are a limited number of spaces, so first come first served!

Here’s a book to inspire and educate girls – be part of it!
