Description
From Jezebel to Catherine the Great, Cleopatra to Mata Hari, Mae West to Bonnie Parker, strong women have been called wicked, wanton, and willful. Sometimes that's a fair designation, but just as often it's undeserved. "Well-behaved women seldom make history," as historian and feminist Laurel Thatcher Ulrich famously said, but what makes these misbehaving women "bad?" Mother and daughter Jane Yolen and Heidi Stemple take point and counterpoint in these 26 entertaining portraits of historical bad girls, for readers 10 and up. Were they great, or were they guilty? Yolen and Stemple argue their respective cases in the comic-strip coda that follows each profile, drawn by Rebecca Guay.
