This book is a lesson in female greatness for boys and girls alike. The book covers the likes of:
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. These ladies range from pirates to artists, warriors, daredevils, scientists, activists, and spies. Their accomplishments are as diverse 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.
