Publisher's Summary

One hundred fascinating and brilliantly written stories about history's bravest, baddest but little known 'nasty' women from across the world.
In the final debate of the 2016 US presidential election, Donald Trump leaned into the microphone as Hillary Clinton spoke about Social Security and called his opponent 'such a nasty woman'. The phrase has stuck around and has since become something of a badge of honour for women around the world. What better time than now, then, for us to look back and learn a thing or two from the 'nasty' women of the past?
Compiled and written by BuzzFeed writer Hannah Jewell, 100 Nasty Women of History contains profiles of women from across every century, race and continent, united in the fact that they were all a bit 'nasty'.
From third-century Japanese empress Jingu to 20th-century British social reformer Octavia Hill, these are the women who were bold and powerful but maybe put people (men's) backs up by being so. 100 Nasty Women of History is an accessible, intelligent, hilarious (and sometimes sweary) guide to the history-making women whom you probably don't know - but definitely should.

informative but rough around the edges

Great concept for a book but the style of sarcasm could have been more dynamic. The editing for the audio is terrible; the inserts of words and phrases by another narrator is very jarring!
