Based on Mackenzi Lee's popular weekly Twitter series of the same name, Bygone Badass Broads features 52 remarkable and forgotten trailblazing women from all over the world. 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. "The last century has been full of fascinating women who refused to cower to the men who tried to keep them down, not least the ones who fought in Ireland and all over the world for the right to vote. Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the World by Mackenzi Lee (Abrams, approx €17), out February 27, arrives just in time for International Women's Day on March 8 and a year of celebrating women all around." Image Magazine "The author of the first novel, warriors and rulers, scientists and war heroes. History abounds with tales of trailblazing women long forgotten - especially those who were nonwhite, non-Western, or not straight. Take a look at a dozen of the women in "Bygone Badass Broads" so you can begin to see what you missed in history class." Boston Globe "The stories themselves wow, told in Lee's conversational and charming style. But coupled with Petra Eriksson's striking, colorful, buoyant illustrations, they start to knock your socks off. Seriously, every image screams to hang on your wall. In many ways, Bygone Badass Broads is a love letter to women and a celebration of them, as Lee says, ‘warts and all.' Our final verdict: so good you'll want to use it to smash the patriarchy. (But please don't, because the book is too beautiful.)" Barnes & Noble TEEN blog "Based on author Mackenzi Lee's popular weekly Twitter series of the same name, Bygone Badass Broads features 52 remarkable and forgotten trailblazing women from all over the world. With tales of heroism and cunning, Bygone Badass Broads gives new life to these historic female pioneers. Starting in the fifth century BC and extending to the present day, the book takes a close look at bold and inspiring women who dared to be different. Coupled with riveting illustrations by Petra Eriksson, this book is an outright celebration of the badass women who paved the way for you and me. When Beyonce said girls run the world, she was talking about girls like the ones found inside Mackenzi Lee's illustrated book, Bygone Badass Broads." Bustle "Lee admirably fulfills her stated goal of promoting lesser-known subjects who are awesome, accompanied by brightly colored, full-page artwork." School Library Journal
