HISTORY VS WOMEN Cover RevealBy Team Fierce Reads
Who cares about a bunch of dead women?
Well, Anita Sarkeesian and Ebony Adams do, and they think you might, too.
History vs Women: The Defiant Lives That They Don’t Want You to Know explores the lives and accomplishments of fascinating women across the world who defied cultural expectations and social pressures that sought to limit their ambition and erase them from the history books. When they were told that women should aspire to be submissive and good, they decided instead to be defiant and great. Their uncompromising lives and thrilling exploits are a reminder that the stories we tell about women—in TV shows, comic books, and video games, as well as in real life—often reflect the stereotypes and limitations that have been created for them, rather than the world-changing feats they have already achieved, often against incredible odds.
Anita and Ebony hope you’ll be as blown away as they are by the colorful tapestries of their lives and the fearsome impact they made on their societies.
