Bad Girls Throughout History is a vibrantly illustrated volume featuring 100 women who were bad in the best sense of the word: they challenged the status quo and changed the rules for all who followed. Each entry features a portrait rendered in author Ann Shen's distinctive, bold watercolor style and a brief essay highlighting the woman's notable achievements.

Organized chronologically, the collection features bad girls from a range of places, eras, ethnicities, and fields – from Aphra Behn (first female professional writer) to Sojourner Truth (activist and abolitionist), Ada Lovelace (the first computer programmer), Marie Currie (first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize), Joan Jett (the Godmother of punk), and many, many more!

excellent introduction to women's history


This book is an excellent intro to women's history! The illustrations are gorgeous and the biographies are concise and exciting. I've already loaned it to my housemates and they love it too! This would make a great gift for any woman - particularly those partial to history, or teenage girls. The only critique I have is that it's quite US/Euro-central and leaves out the achievements of indigenous women pretty much across the board. Other than that though, it's a great little book!
