With tales of heroism and cunning, in-depth bios and witty storytelling, Bygone Badass Broads gives new life to these historic female pioneers. Starting in the fifth century BC and continuing to the present, the book takes a closer look at bold and inspiring women who dared to step outside the traditional gender roles of their time. Coupled with riveting illustrations and Lee’s humorous and conversational storytelling style, this book is an outright celebration of the badass women who paved the way for the rest of us.

A nonfiction book about forgotten women who shaped history? Count me in! And, I mean, I could always use more of Mackenzi Lee’s writing. This started out as a series on Mackenzi Lee’s Twitter, and every week I look forward to reading about another kickass lady through #BygoneBadassBroads. Plus, it seems like this collection will be intersectional… here’s hoping!
