Synopsis

Bad Girls Throughout History 100 Remarkable Women Who Changed the World by Ann Shen

Aphra Behn, first female professional writer. Sojourner Truth, activist and abolitionist. Ada Lovelace, first computer programmer. Marie Curie, first woman to win the Nobel Prize. Joan Jett, godmother of punk. The 100 revolutionary women highlighted in this gorgeously illustrated book were bad in the best sense of the word: they challenged the status quo and changed the rules for all who followed. From pirates to artists, warriors, daredevils, scientists, activists, and spies, the accomplishments of these incredible women vary as much as the eras and places in which they effected change. Featuring bold watercolour portraits and illuminating essays by Ann Shen, Bad Girls Throughout History is a distinctive, gift-worthy tribute.

Reviews

'Working from the Laurel Thatcher Ulrich adage Well-behaved women seldom make history, this is a gorgeously illustrated collection of short bios about famous and lesser-known historical figures, including Anna May Wong, the first Asian-American movie star, and Aphra Behn, the first female professional writer.' - BookRiot.com
