Bad Girls Throughout History is a vibrantly illustrated volume featuring 100 women who were bad in the best sense of the word: they challenged the status quo and changed the rules for all who followed. Each entry features a portrait rendered in author Ann Shen's distinctive, bold watercolor style and a brief essay highlighting the woman's notable achievements. Organized chronologically, the collection features bad girls from a range of places, eras, ethnicities, and fields – from Aphra Behn (first female professional writer) to Sojourner Truth (activist and abolitionist), Ada Lovelace (the first computer programmer), Marie Currie (first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize), Joan Jett (the Godmother of punk), and many, many more!
