About the Book

This bold, gift-worthy and inspiring history tells the stories of nine women who, despite every effort to suppress them, dared to be extraordinary.

ROARING GIRLS tells fresh, engaging, and amazing tales of perseverance grit and radical success by pairing well-researched and riveting biographies with powerful and expressive drawings. The book features an array of diverse figures from 1500 to 1900, from transvestite, performer and highwaywoman Mary Frith and philosopher, scientist, proto-feminist and science fiction writer Margaret Cavendish through to ‘Queen of the Desert’, writer, mountaineer, diplomat, spy and archaeologist Gertrude Bell.

This progressive and visually arresting book is a compelling addition to women's history and belongs on the shelf of every school, library, and home. Together, these stories show the immense range of what women have done and can do.
