Tuesday is the last day of Women's History Month.

There's still a little still time to learn about some of the fantastic females who have helped shape our world, and there's a really fun way to do so with your kids.

The new book "Rad American Women A to Z" profiles 26 amazing women, including many familiar names like Angela Davis, Billie Jean King and Carol Burnett. But, there are also a few you may not have heard of before. 

Kate Schatz is the book's author, and she joins the show.

You can also catch a reading with Schatz Tuesday night at the Hammer Museum.
