200 Tales of Extraordinary Women

Runaway bestselling books Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls and Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2 were produced and sold as audiobooks by Penguin Random House/Listening Library in 2018. Narrated by a star-studded fierce female cast, the audiobook brings together award-winning musicians, actresses, and outspoken advocates.


The notable ensemble of women includes:

Ashley Judd, Time’s Up leader, UN Global Goodwill Ambassador

Danai Gurira, Tony Award®-nominated playwright; Black Panther

Esperanza Spalding, GRAMMY® Award-winning musician

Together the books include 200 bedtime stories about the lives of extraordinary women past and present, from Ruth Bader Ginsburg (read by Ashley Judd) to Beyoncé (read by Samira Wiley), Gloria Steinem (read by Danai Gurira), and Malala Yousafzai (read by Alicia Keys). Each short biography is written in the style of a fairy tale and highlights painters, scientists, dancers, chefs, astronauts, jazz singers, pharaohs, boxers, writers, and political leaders from every corner of the globe.


Elizabeth Healy was very pleased to be asked by Penguin Random House to direct several of the narrators for this inspiring project–Ashley Judd, Janeane Garofolo and Esperanza Spalding.
