Book Summary

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 watercolor portraits and illuminating essays by Ann Shen, Bad Girls Throughout History is a distinctive, gift-worthy tribute.

    Entertaining, quick and easy to read and with gorgeous illustrations, very recommendable! My only issue is that it's not very innovative in the sense that I already knew about 95% of the women included in this book, and most of the ones I didn't know about left me a bit cold. Also, a lot of the biographies were way too short to fully transmit the impact these very awesome ladies have had in our society.

    Just lame. These were all copy and pasted from Wikipedia, and the women chosen are predominantly white, heterosexual, and cisgender. Only two women are listed as LGBT when there are countless others within the book that are documented as gay women, for example Eleanor Roosevelt and Josephine Baker. I learned more from googling the names of unfamiliar to me women than I did from this book.
