    I read one or two pieces in this book every morning over a few months, and I thoroughly enjoyed it Not only did the words inspire me and set me up nicely for the day, but the cover image of tired but badass caffeinated redhead inspired me too I now have it fac...

    Turns out Boudicca mercilessly burned key settlements slaughtering their citizens so maybe she isn t the best example, but that s also what makes this book interesting In the Afterword, the authors say None of these women was perfect some of them did terrible as well as wonderful things They were morally complex people but we re here to celebrate their achievements rather th...

    A great and interesting book that is both educational and funny It is written in a way that is easy to understand and it has great illustrations I only wish some parts were longer and had deeper explanations.

    I wanted less pop culture reference, fully researched history All of the subjects have much to teach than the meme heavy pages offered.

    EVERY GIRL NEEDS TO READ THIS.This made me understand myself so much better than those crappy talks you get from school telling you to be ladylike We need to view these women as a role models in everyday life and this book has me fired up for life

    I love that it s not a traditional history lesson but a life lesson of what we can learn from these women It s not about them it s about what they did A lot in a time when they weren t allowed to, which is always a great reminder ...
