Bygone Badass Broads

Bygone Badass Broads

“You’ll meet suffragettes who did jujitsu, women warriors who wore lipstick into battle and queens who put women in their rightful places—positions of power.” —Ms. Based on Mackenzi Lee’s popular weekly Twitter series of the same name, Bygone Badass Broads features fifty-two remarkable and forgotten trailblazing women from all over the world. With tales of heroism and cunning, in-depth bios and witty storytelling, Bygone Badass Broads gives new life to these historic female pioneers. Starting in the fifth century BC and continuing to the present, the book takes a closer look at bold and inspiring women who dared to step outside the traditional gender roles of their time. Coupled with riveting illustrations and Lee’s humorous and conversational storytelling style, this book is an outright celebration of the badass women who paved the way for the rest of us. “The author of the first novel, warriors and rulers, scientists and war heroes. History abounds with tales of trailblazing women long forgotten—especially those who were nonwhite, non-Western, or not straight. Take a look at a dozen of the women in Bygone Badass Broads so you can begin to see what you missed in history class.” —The Boston Globe “Shar[es] the stories of fifty-two women in history who changed the game forever—even though you’ve probably never heard of them . . . If you’re looking for some inspiration this , you Women’s History Month just got it—fifty-two times over.” —Bustle “Lee admirably fulfills her stated goal of promoting lesser-known subjects who are awesome, accompanied by brightly colored, full-page artwork.” —School Library Journal
