Bad Girls Throughout History: 100 Remarkable Women Who Changed the World (Hardcover)
by Ann Shen
Aphra Behn, first female professional writer. Sojourner Truth, activist and abolitionist. Ada Lovelace, first computer programmer. Marie Curie, first woman to win the Nobel Prize. Joan Jett, godmother of punk.
The 100 revolutionary women highlighted in this gorgeously illustrated book were bad in the best sense of the word: they challenged the status quo and changed the rules for all who followed. From pirates to artists, warriors, daredevils, scientists, activists, and spies, the accomplishments of these incredible women vary as much as the eras and places in which they effected change. Featuring bold watercolor portraits and illuminating essays by Ann Shen, Bad Girls Throughout History is a distinctive, gift-worthy tribute.

Diva is an Italian word derived from the Latin divus, which literally translates as “the divine one” or “goddess.”
In the world of opera, however, diva takes on a more exalted meaning, referring to the principal female singer on stage and harking back to a time when opera singers were music’s biggest stars.
