If You Lived When Women Won Their Rights, by Anne Kamma:
Molly And The Sword, by Robert Shlasko. This is a beautifully illustrated short picture book about a talented violinist who is told by a violin teacher “I don’t teach girls.” It is an example of prejudice against women that is overcome by grace and perseverance. It is also a story about overcoming ethnic prejudice and of course, about the joy of playing the violin.
