Description

Based on Mackenzi Lee's popular weekly Twitter series of the same name, Bygone Badass Broads features 52 remarkable and forgotten trailblazing women from all over the world. With tales of heroism and cunning, in-depth bios and witty storytelling, Bygone Badass Broads gives new life to these historic female pioneers. Starting in the fifth century BC and continuing to the present, the book takes a closer look at bold and inspiring women who dared to step outside the traditional gender roles of their time. Coupled with Lee's humorous and conversational storytelling style, this book is an outright celebration of the badass women who paved the way for the rest of us.

Mediocre

If you can get passed the obvious political push and personal opinions, this is a nice book. Could not listen around my young children because of the language. I saw one review encouraging teens to listen, just be aware that she does use the “F” word and all others. I had hoped for more details on each person, but I understand the data is lacking. It could have been great - pushy opinions make it only okay, for me.

Awesome history, heavy-handed political agenda

This book contains 52 great five minute biographies, none of them concerning the usual suspects. You can read about Cleopatra or Amelia Earhart lots of places. This is a sampler of people you probably haven't heard of, which is exactly what I wanted. There have been some powerful/influential women of all races and religions going back thousands of years and here are the details. The brevity makes this an easy listen. It's straight forward and concise enough to be accessible to kids, but it's very informative to adults. Beware: If you chafe at being lectured about social justice, this author may be a challenge for you. She's not the kind of historian who lets the facts speak for themselves. She shares her views. IMO everyone would benefit from having a broader knowledge of history. She clearly has a passion for inspiring disenfranchised women, which is noble. But, making visitors form outside that group feel welcome doesn't necessarily seem to be her priority.

Fantastic,Educational and Essential

The performance was supreme. Lucy James has a voice that is one of the best I’ve heard. She was perfect for this “important “ book. I learned more about the herstory of many amazing women in 4 hours then I have in over 70 years of life. This is a must listen for all people who support equality. It assures you that if ANY job needs to be done...there is a special woman out there to do it. Thank you Ms Lee for your exceptional book.

Political message overrides the history

I listened to sample instead of reading the reviews. I stopped 3 stories in and deleted this book because of the militant feminism. I love history and especially ones with women in it but I felt pummeled by the authors agenda and biased representation of history.

Perfect little snippets

This has so much fun bad-assery happening here! Little snippet stories I enjoyed very much. A podcast for this would be exceptional.

12 year old

I am not sure whom the audience is supposed to be, but the narrator ruins the book in about 30 minutes. She sounds like a 12 yr old snotty spoiled brat. I couldnt take it....
