100 Nasty Women of History Read Online Free - These are the women who were deemed too nasty for their times - too nasty to be recognised, too nasty to be paid for their work and sometimes too nasty to be allowed to live.
When you learn about women in history, it's hard not to wonder: why do they all seem so prim and proper? The truth is, you're probably not being told the whole story. Also, (mostly male) historians keep leaving out or glossing over some of the most badass women who ever walked the surface of this planet. Fake news!
But fret not. Former Buzzfeed senior writer and Washington Post pop culture host Hannah Jewell has got you covered. In 100 Nasty Women of History, Hannah will spill the tea on:
-the women with impressive kill counts
-the women who wrote dangerous things
-the women who fought empires and racists
-the women who knew how to have a good-ass time
-the women who punched Nazis (metaphorically but also not)
And that's just half of the women in this book. That's pretty metal.
So, if you think that Nasty Women are a new thing, think again. They've always been around - you just haven't always heard of them. Take these stories and tell them to your friends. Write them on a wall. Sneakily tell them to your niece (who's old enough to hear the bad words, of course). Post them to your local MP (especially if it's a man). Make your friends dress up as Nasty Women for Halloween. These are the 100 Nasty Women of History who gave zero f*cks whatsoever. These are the 100 Nasty Women of History who made a difference.
These are the 100 Nasty Women of History whom everyone needs to know about, right now.

I took my time with this book for 2 reasons. Firstly because if I read it all in like a week or so, the women would all get jumbled in my mind and I wouldn't have enough time to reflect on each of them individually. Then secondly, because this book made me so mad, that I had to put it down at tim...

This book was utterly hilarious. I had never heard of any of the women that were talked about in this book, which is entirely its purpose, but I definitely feel a lot more informed about these badass, amazing women. Jewell has created an incredibly well researched book about the wonderful ladies...

Great topic but not a book for people that enjoy learning about history. It’s a shame that nuggets of interesting information hide between the authors apparent dislike of men, unfunny commentary and just general uninteresting BS to fill page space.
If you think you would enjoy 400+ pages of click...

Annoyed that the history books are filled with the exploits (and mistakes) of men? Well then, look no further because in She Caused A Riot, Hannah Jewell explores the amazing contributions that one hundred or so women...

DNF at page 40.
I was so eager to read this book but it seems that this book isn't for people that enjoy history or maybe it's for really young people. So many parts of history are disregarded as not interesting to the reader!
In any other circumstance I would love the humorous way she writes, but...

This book is Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls for grown ups; hilarious, sarcastic, snort-worthy sweary stories about over one hundred largely unknown women throughout history who didn't let being female hold them back. A brilliant, inspiring collection that asserts (if you ever needed it) that...

I enjoyed this book. For the most part, it did what the title suggests: tells you about women from across history. This is essentially an adult version of Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls.
You can definitely tell that this is targeted towards young women. The humour, the writing, the tone, it's a...

What to say about this 400-page delight that I have devoured in less than 24 hours? What an amazing book to read as we were approaching the end of a year which has challenged the very concept of hope, especially hope for women and minorities in general. It was a breath of fresh air to read about...
