Completely over Disney princess feminism?

An upcoming book titled Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls aims to provide young girls with real-life role models, each boasting accomplishments slightly more varied than finding the hunk of their dreams. A Kickstarter campaign to promote the title has raised over $95,000 as of Saturday afternoon, more than twice the $40,000 goal.

The book features real-life female heroes like "the Brontë sisters, Frida Kahlo, Serena Williams and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. ... game-changing women have influenced the world themselves," reported the Huffington Post.

According to the Post, each page is also illustrated by "a different woman from a different part of the world."

Here's a sample of some of the pages posted on their Kickstarter page:

"Gender stereotypes permeate every aspect of our culture," co-creator Elena Favilli told the Post. "We constantly urge ourselves to 'lean in' and books on female empowerment proliferate on our shelves ... but they come far too late."
