    ???? This is 110% my new favorite book! It's filled with stories about incredible women who stood against all odds and shaped our history. They are intelligent, strong, brave, kind, fierce, beautiful and independent, every one of them! I don't really know what to say, ex...

    I freaking loved this! All the different stories about amazing women from around the world was so inspiring and empowering. I loved the format of this book too, the short graphic novel story of their lives followed by a full spread illustration. Recommend to everyone! ...

    *Bursts into song singing ?I?m Every Woman? after finishing the book.* Wow. What an incredible book. I laughed, I teared up, I felt wholeheartedly inspired. The artwork was gorgeous and the spreads in between each story need to be framed and put up all over my house. While I h...

    An excellent compilation of some very interesting, cool women. I was strangely touched especially by Giorgina Reid, the lighthouse keeper. I didn't give this five stars because there were a few women I didn't agree completely with their cause, but the author states that this is a book ...

    There are a ton of books, of late, that are about famous women. And not to knock any of them, but after a while, all of them go over the same women. You get her Harriat Tubmans, and your Helen Kellers, and your Anne Franks. This book doesn't go after the ladies you have heard about...

    This is amazing, you have to read it. I wasn't going to, because I have been reading all these books for kids featuring one page portraits of inspiring famous women, accompanied by a few sentences. Cute, important, and here we are, Dave, another one, sigh. I even had it out of the libr...

    ???? This is 110% my new favorite book! It's filled with stories about incredible women who stood against all odds and shaped our history. They are intelligent, strong, brave, kind, fierce, beautiful and independent, every one of them! I don't really know what to say, ex...

    #mystrangereading Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked The World by Penelope Bagieu ????? So, I don't typically read graphic novels. This is not because I don't like them in general but have never found one I absolutely loved. BUT LOOK NO FURTHER. This book was incredible. I learn...

    When a good number of my GR friends raved about how awesome this book is, I knew I had to read it, even though I was afraid that it could in no way live up to my hopes for it after seeing those reviews. Well, ha. It completely blew my expectations away. This book has everything...

    A copy was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review BRAZEN is a graphic novel I would have loved to have read when I was little. In school we're surrounded by male authority figures and rarely do we here in depth biographies of amazing women throu...

    With her characteristic wit and dazzling drawings, Pnlope Bagieu profiles the lives of formidable female role models, some world famous, some little known. From Nellie Bly to Mae Jemison, or Josephine Baker to Naziq al-Abid, their stories are sure to inspire the next generation of ...

    This is just as amazing as the wonderful review by treasured GR friend David describes (and he knows his graphic novels-he is literally a subject matter expert in this area!). Read his review, which is at the top of the queue, to understand why this creative, whimsical, beautiful, yet ...

    This amazing work of comics introduces the lives of women, both famous and obscure, and the impact that they have had on society. The characterization of the women presented here is very strong. The personalities, thoughts, ambitions, and feelings of each historical figure come alive t...

    I have to say that this was a really one of a kind book to get. I bought this last year at the National Book Festival and was intrigued by it once I took a look inside. The graphic art pops and the stories are wonderful. I actually wanted even more information than I got once I got don...

    I don't have anything bad to say about this. I loved the illustrations, the colors.. oh and the stories about the ladies who rocked the world. ...

    I loved the art and I loved (most) of the stories! There were quite a few of them that made me tear up with pride that these women are a part of history, only wishing that more people knew their stories ...

    I've seen so many of these types of books published now and they usually are the same thing. They have nice art, but they usually have a one page short bio of a woman you most likely heard about making their life seem like nothing bad ever happened. It gets repetitive and annoying. Do ...

    I'm sure it's partially due to having a really tough week, but I got so emotional reading this book. There were several points throughout reading this today that I got choked up...I was so overwhelmed by the successes of these women, the obstacles they faced, their brains, their panach...

    You know I wasn?t sure if this was going to be good or bad. I?m impressed! Also, this review does get political. First, my thoughts on feminism: I fully support equality and believe that women can be just as smart, strong, brave, etc. as men but modern feminism gets out of hand...

    This was much better than I was expecting. I mean, I already love what I've seen of Pnlope Bagieu?s work, but I think this is her best book yet. This is a collection of mini biographies--around five pages each--of women from around the world who, well, basically kicked ass. Th...

    absolutely brilliant Blog ? Goodreads ? Twitter ? Instagram ...

    In this wonderful illustrated novel, we are presented with a collection of 29 brief biographies, of various women through history, who displayed "The Right Stuff". Tough, smart, bold, courageous and wildly creative. There are a few women here, that are well-known but most of them have ...

    I freaking loved this! All the different stories about amazing women from around the world was so inspiring and empowering. I loved the format of this book too, the short graphic novel story of their lives followed by a full spread illustration. Recommend to everyone! ...

    *Bursts into song singing ?I?m Every Woman? after finishing the book.* Wow. What an incredible book. I laughed, I teared up, I felt wholeheartedly inspired. The artwork was gorgeous and the spreads in between each story need to be framed and put up all over my house. While I h...
