Introduction: By their works you shall know them -- Reckless rebels -- Revelatory scholars -- Ruthless villains -- Restless artists -- Relentless amazons -- Afterword
Sarkeesian and Aster introduce readers to a range of dynamic women across many different races, countries, time periods, and classes. You'll be hearing about many of them for the first time, but they made impacts on their societies. Why have their historical contributions been lost? The authors know that it is easier to learn about white, Western people-- especially males-- than of people of color, queer and trans folks, and people with disabilities. They hope to reframe the history you thought you knew
Looking through the ages and across the globe, Anita Sarkeesian, founder of Feminist Frequency, along with Ebony Adams PHD, have reclaimed the stories of twenty-five remarkable women who dared to defy history and change the world around them. From Mongolian wrestlers to Chinese pirates, Native American ballerinas to Egyptian scientists, Japanese novelists to British Prime Ministers, History vs Women will reframe the history that you thought you knew. Featuring beautiful full-color illustrations of each woman and a bold graphic design, this standout nonfiction title is the perfect read for teens (or adults!) who want the true stories of phenomenal women from around the world and insight into how their lives and accomplishments impacted both their societies and our own.
