About the Book

History vs Women: The Defiant Lives that They Don't Want You to Know

written by Anita Sarkeesian and Ebony Adams with illustrations by T.S. Abe

Rebels, rulers, scientists, artists, warriors and villains.

Women are, and have always been, all these things and more.

Looking through the ages and across the globe, Anita Sarkeesian, founder of Feminist Frequency, along with Ebony Adams, PhD., have reclaimed the stories of 25 remarkable women who dared to defy history and change the world around them. From Mongolian wrestlers to Chinese pirates, Native American ballerinas to Egyptian scientists, Japanese novelists to British Prime Ministers, HISTORY VS WOMEN will reframe the history that you thought you knew.

Featuring beautiful full-color illustrations of each woman and a bold graphic design, this standout nonfiction title is the perfect read for teens (or adults!) who want the true stories of phenomenal women from around the world and insight into how their lives and accomplishments impacted both their societies and our own.
