Though I was struggling a bit at the start of this book with the super casual language used for chronicling each historic woman, I realized (rather quickly, thankfully!) that the modern take on these badass broads is exactly what makes this read that more approachable and original.

The women featured in this book truly did change society and impact feminism. Many of the women in this book are homosexual, one is a transgender woman, many are women of colour, indigenous women, educated women, women from poor economic backgrounds. There is a role model for everyone, whether yo...

I received a free copy of this book from Abrams Books in exchange for an honest review.
Bygone Badass Broads is a wonderful picture book full of witty, interesting stories about amazing women that have (for some annoying reason) being left out of history books.
