Summary
"Bad Girls Throughout History features some of the fiercest women of all time - the famous, the infamous, and the ones you haven't even heard of yet. Explore the notable works, impressive feats, and striking portraits of these wild women from around the globe who challenged the status quo"-- Provided by publisher.
Short vignettes are accompanied by Shen's drawings. The women may not be "bad" in the common sense of the word, but at some time in their lives they broke the socially accepted rules: freeing slaves; fighting to get the vote; setting up their own companies; or just the act of going to school. Mostly real, some fictional, these wild women from around the globe challenged the status quo.
