Keeping it to just 100 was a struggle. But we figured that any more miscast, missing and misunderstood women in one sitting would push you over the edge in your righteous, indignant fury. So actually, we're thinking of you. (You're welcome). It's a broad mix as we have delved into the growing pile of women's histories and selected those gals we felt were interesting, compelling or just fun. Many will be familiar in their native countries and celebrated in folklore legend but we believe they deserve a wider audience. There are thousands more that could have been included but it's a short book and we could only pick 100. What unites our cast of characters is that they have all suffered being miscast, type cast or simply cast aside. So, sit back. Read. Enjoy. And kick some butt in solidarity. AUTHORS: Michelle Rosenberg is a writer and passionate women s historian with a great fondness for her two daughters, bawdy humour and inappropriate language (in that order). She is on the Advisory Board of the East End Women's Museum. Sonia Picker is an American Scot living far from home in the wilds of London. A keen writer with particular interests in women s history, social issues and women s rights, she also acts as a social media creative consultant for growing businesses. With a background in publishing, journalism and the voluntary sector, she aims to change the lives of young people using history as an inspiration.
