This event is part of the Can We Talk About This? series.
Reckless rebels, ruthless villains, restless artists. Women are all of these things and more, according to the brief biographical sketches by Anita Sarkeesian (the founder of Feminist Frequency) and Ebony Adams. Spanning many eras, History vs. Women reclaims the story of twenty-five women who defied history and changed the world. You'll find tales of Chinese pirates, British prime ministers, and Native American ballerinas. They've been queens, leaders, rascals, and criminals defying the odds. With full-page illustrations and gripping biographies, these are not your traditional history lessons. Instead, the book introduces extraordinary women and their extraordinary lives. Ages 12 and up.
