This list is not very diverse as it mostly included European and American women. Biographies were too short and factual(very Wikipedia-like) for my taste. But I did learn something new and got introduced to some remarkable women, and the illustrations are lovely. It's between pick and so-so really. 📚📚📓📓💪

Joan is the bad chic I identify the most with. She was committed not only to country but to God and she was a warrior. I wear a Jean de Arc coin often. #patronsaintofsoldiers #france

The book is about bad a.k.a revolutionary women who were known for challenging social norms imposed on women. It might have included some controversial choices but the highlight of the book are the illustrations, they are beautiful. The descriptions seem like a shorter version of Wikipedia. Majority of the women included are American or European with very few women from other countries. 👇

sudi As a South Asian, the only person mentioned from South Asia was Malala Yousafzai. Also no mention of Frida Kahlo, which was dissapointing. The book is an amazing idea but it should be titled Bad Girls Throughout Western History so as to not mislead people who are actually expecting a diverse list of women from all over the world. 7mo

This was a fun, easy read. The illustrations of the women were gorgeous, and the stories were very interesting! I definitely learned about some rad women I had never heard of. My complaint is that I wish there would have been a more even representation of races instead of being majority white women.

A fun diversion: Shen paints and briefly profiles 100 notable women throughout history. Some are well-known, others I have never heard of, but it is fun to Google them. I spent quite a bit of time Googling Hedy Lamarr, whom I knew as a movie star, but not as the inventor of the technology wi-fi is based on. Cool tidbits like that make this a fun book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
Thanks for the recommendation, @Riveted_Reader_Melissa !

Informative, but largely inessential book about bad ass women throughout history. It is free on Amazon Prime Reading, which is why I checked it out. The biographies are basically Wikipedia-light, and although the accompanying illustrations are nice, most didn‘t really look like the people, in my opinion. Best thing I learned was that Ada Lovelace (computing pioneer) was the only legitimate offspring of Lord Byron!

Reviewsbylola I returned this unread. I loved the illustrations but the blurbs did nothing for me. 1y
Kimberlone @Reviewsbylola I didn‘t even think the illustrations were very good. For the older figures we don‘t have photographic evidence of, they were fine, but the more modern women didn‘t really look anything like people 1y
Reviewsbylola No you‘re right. But they‘re why I initially decided to try the book. 😂 I thought the cover art was so beautiful. Luckily I went the library route because although I do like the style of the portraits, they all have a sameness to them and aren‘t original. I really prefer Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls. You never know what each portrait will look like from page to page! 1y

I really enjoyed these short profiles on ‘Bad Girls‘ and I‘m pretty sure I‘ll be gifting this one a few times in the future. Many I knew, Ruth Bade Ginsburg, Sally Ride, and Malala Yousafzai...some were new to me like Junko Tabei... but I found myself pausing to look up a few and read more, google their artwork, add their books, etc.

Just an FYI...it also includes grown up bad Girls from Gypsy Lee Rose to Bettie Page, as well as ...

Riveted_Reader_Melissa ... leaders of the feminist movements, and icons like Oprah and Maya Angelou who had less than Disney-ified childhoods which include everything from burlesque to abortion, rape to drug use, not to mention shootings and burnings so you may not want to gift this too young or at least not until you‘re willing to have the serious conversations that might result in a realistic look at powerful women and some of the things they‘ve had to overcome.

Reminds me of the Women & Power book by Mary Beard (tagged below) that I read earlier this year....about how these early ideas about women being unqualified to speak in public persist, except now are framed as she‘s to shrill, strident, etc, etc to listen too.🙄

Weaponxgirl This made me think of the have I got news for you crap. Or women MPs just aren't putting themselves forward, it's not our fault we don't have them in the show. Why wouldn't she want to be the only woman on a panel of rowdy male comedians? Blah, blah 🙄 2y

Did I mention Judy Blume is awesome? Her book, Forever, was banned from the middle schools in my district. When I started working at my school in 2000, one of the other librarians was organizing a second attempt to get the book back on the shelves. Judy heard about our fight and wrote a letter for us to share with the school board.

Each page features a stunning portrait and a short summary of her accomplishments. A great book for all ages and stages of readers. Hear more about it on Episode 18.⠀🎧

I read this for #litsyreadingchallenge. It's a pick but very basic, the blurbs give you the bare bones on each person. I would happily give this to a young girl as inspiration but felt there should have been more women in science and woc included in this book. I also went into this going to celebrate each woman and it does say women who changed the world but a major caveat I hold as a personal prejudice is the inclusion of Margaret thatcher. Cont

Weaponxgirl I respect what she accomplished as a woman very much but I personally don't think she's someone to look up to as a feminist role model in a lot of ways. Main reasons being her policies and the fact that she never really seemed to like women and actually help other women progress like she had. Like I say though , that is a very personal caveat! The artwork is beautiful though 3y
