First graphic novel I read. As a senior citizen didn't think this genre was for me. However, it was a short and easy to read; historically informative; humorous. I have recommended this many times as reference material and/ or means of…Read moreRead more of this comment

While I was reading this book, my face was a giant heart-eyes emoji. I was expecting to find this book interesting, but I did not expect to be completely charmed! In a series of short comics, Bagieu tells the stories of women who are too…Read moreRead more of this comment

A graphic novel was the perfect format for this book. Bagieu imbued just enough humor into her stories and art to make you want to learn more about every single woman in it - many of whom I had never heard of.
