Uppity Women of History

Cranky Ladies logoThis post is written as part of the Women’s History Month Cranky Ladies of History blog tour. If  you would like to read more about cranky ladies from the past, you might like to support our Pozible campaign, crowd-funding an anthology of short stories about Cranky Ladies of History from all over the world.

I came across the book Uppity Women of the Renaissance in my school library on Friday and immediately went and looked up what else the author, Vicki Leon, had done in the field. Turns out there’s a whole BUNCH of books under the Uppity Women banner, and I reckon they fit right in with our Cranky Ladies of History!

  1. I read 4000 Years of Uppity Women last year. It was brilliant for me, as I like history but am easily bored by dry texts. I could read it in bite size pieces and be at turns amused and inspired by the uppity women dicussed.
