These coloring pages promote women and their achievements in a fun and interactive way. That is to say, art, history, creativity, and civics come together to grow minds. Enjoy sharing and discussing with your kids, OR just have fun coloring them yourself.

Mendes Wee is a women owned law firm, staffed by women, and proud to serve the men and women of Walnut Creek, Danville, and the Bay Area. Most importantly, as attorneys, we have studied the history of civil rights, and have sworn an oath to strive for Justice. Tax and Estate attorney Christina Weed and I zealously celebrate “Girl Power”, and enjoy a “Girl’s Night Out”. But, we also feel a responsibility as mothers, women, and involved community members to empower and promote equity for women of all ages. As you will see, coloring is a fun way to learn, and the inspiring women featured here are people everyone should be familiar with.

There are many benefits from coloring, both for adults and kids. It is a creative outlet, where the lines suggest rules the artistic expression is free form. The subject of a coloring book helps inform the colorer as they relax and engage with the subject in quiet contemplation. We encourage you to share these coloring sheets with friends and family to encourage all our kids to grow up thoughtful, creative, informed, and engaged. 

Our firm handles Family Law litigation and mediation, as well as Tax Litigation, Probate, Estate Planning and Trust Litigation. Our clients are men and women, boys and girls, sons and daughters.

 As moms, we want our boys and girls to recognize and appreciate the efforts of great women who paved the way for all women today.

The coloring pages below portray strong and heroic women who are an inspiration.  The pages promote women and their achievements in a fun and interactive way. Art, history, creativity, and civics come together to grow minds. Enjoy sharing and discussing with your kids, OR just have fun coloring them yourself.

Here are seven coloring sheets based on inspiring women for your kids (and you!) to enjoy and share.

Though on the bench she wears black and white, she is anything but drab. Above all, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dazzling and brilliant, and a lifetime of jurisprudence protecting the Constitution and us all.Ruth Bader Ginsburg Coloring

Women’s Suffrage 1920

A stark reminder that a hundred years ago, women were not allowed to vote in the United States. We have come so far because of the brave and determined women, the Suffragettes, who marched and spoke out for equality.
