I borrowed this book from Overdrive as a Women’s History Month recommendation by my local library. It’s probably aimed at a slightly younger audience than myself, but I enjoyed reading it and found the illustrations just adorable.
The author spends 2-3 pages on each of 100 women throughout history — their triumphs and failures, and why we should remember them. I would say I had heard of about two-thirds of them, which was neat because it’s always pleasing to find out that there are so many other badass ladies out there to learn about. It’s pretty Western-centric, although she does hit on some other cultures. It also focuses primarily, at least in my recollection, on maybe the last two hundred years. But she does reach further back for some stories, and it’s obvious that she took a long time making her selections. The facts are quick and interesting. This would be a fun book to pull out at parties and show off your bad girl knowledge.
