Summary
Warriors, pirates, murderers and queens...Throughout history, women from all walks of life have had good reason to be cranky. Some of our most memorable historical figures were outspoken, dramatic, brave, feisty, rebellious and downright ornery.Cranky Ladies of History is a celebration of 22 women who challenged conventional wisdom about appropriate female behaviour, from the ancient world all the way through to the twentieth century. Some of our protagonists are infamous and iconic, while others have been all but forgotten under the heavy weight of history.Sometimes you have to break the rules before the rules break you.CONTENTS:Introduction by Tansy Rayner RobertsQueenside by Liz BarrThe Company Of Women by Garth NixMary, Mary by Kirstyn McDermottA Song For Sacagawea by Jane YolenLook How Cold My Hands Are by Deborah BiancottiBright Moon by Foz MeadowsCharmed Life by Joyce ChngA Beautiful Stream by Nisi ShawlNeter Nefer by Amanda PillarThe Dragon, The Terror, The Sea by Stephanie LaiDue Care And Attention by Sylvia KelsoTheodora by Barbara RobsonFor So Great A Misdeed by Lisa L.
