Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries How Women (Also) Built the World

Mosse, Kate

Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries is a celebration of unheard and under-heard women's history. You will meet nearly 1000 women whose names deserve to be better known - from the Mothers of Invention and the trailblazing women at the Bar, warrior queens and pirate commanders; the women who dedicated their lives to the natural world or to medicine, those women of courage who resisted and fought for what they believed, to the unsung heroes of stage, screen and stadium. It is global, travelling the world and spanning all periods of time. It is also an intensely moving detective story of the author's own family history as Kate Mosse pieces together the forgotten life of her great-grandmother, Lily Watson, a famous and highly-successful novelist in her day who has all but disappeared from the record ... Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries is accessible, ambitious in its scope and fascinating in its detail. A beautiful dictionary of women, it is a love letter to family history and a personal memoir about the nature of women's struggles to be heard and their achievements acknowledged. Joyous, celebratory and engaging, it is an audiobook for everyone who has ever wondered how history is made.
