I haven’t read the first in the series (Rad American Women) but I can recommend Rad Women Worldwide as a fascinating compendium of heroines. From the well-known, e.g. Malala, Venus & Serena Williams and Frida Kahlo to the less well-known (to me): Faith Bandler, Sor Juana and Junko Tabei and from the historical (Enheduanna, Hypatia) to the contemporary (Bastardilla, Poly Styrene!) this is a great addition to a non-fiction library and I love the list (indexed by country of origin) of 250 other rad women at the back. Every page here tells a story, each woman is worthy of a book in their own right. Inspirational.
