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, [the authors] 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, [this book] will reframe the history that you thought you knew"--Provided by publisher.
