Meet the bold women history has tried to forget...until now! Women's stories are often written as if they spent their entire time on Earth casting woeful but beautiful glances towards the horizon and sighing into the bitter wind at the thought of any conflict. Well, that's not how it f**king happened.When you hear about a woman who was 100% pure and good, you're probably missing the best chapters in her life's story. Maybe she slept around. Maybe she stole. Maybe she crashed planes. Maybe she got shot, or maybe she shot a bad guy (who probably had it coming). Maybe she caused a scandal. Maybe she caused a riot . . . From badass writer Hannah Jewell, She Caused a Riotis an empowering, no-holds-barred look into the epic adventures and dangerous exploits of 100 inspiring women who were too brave, too brilliant, too unconventional, too political, too poor, not ladylike enough and not white enough to be recognized by their shitty contemporaries. Daring and gift-worthy, this is a bold tribute to the powerful women who came before us.… (mais)

She Caused A Riot:100 Unknown Women Who Built Cities, Sparked Revolutions & Massively Crushed It
by Hannah Jewell
2019
Sourcebooks
4.0 / 5.0

This is a well-researched collection that features some bad-ass women I have never heard of, or forgotten about. I wish it featured less commentary and more history, and maybe more pictures. I'm so glad I found this. The women are amazing, and lived inspiring lives, esp for the time they lived.

I loved this book! Loved, loved, loved it. If you're a feminist worn down by the heartbreaking struggle of the last two years, this book will pick up your spirits--at least while you're reading and/or listening to it. I got a free audiobook copy from the Early Reviewer program. Rachael Beresford does a fantastic job of bringing Hannah Jewell's words to life. Note, there's a lot of swearing and smacking around of the menz. If that gets your panties in a knot, you probably want to try something else. For me, though, (a 56 year-old chick) it's awesome. ( )

This is similar to numerous other recently published tomes bringing to light the exploits of kick-ass women throughout history who've been largely ignored or minimized up until now. I didn't love this one as much as I've enjoyed others - I received a copy of the audio version from the publisher in a LibraryThing giveaway and I found the narrator completely unsuited to the book, to the point of distraction. Additionally, I think a book like this is best if dipped into and out of, but I went through it all in one listen (not all at one time, of course, but it was the only thing I was listening to at the time). Not my favorite, but still appreciated.

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of the audiobook, provided to me via the LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program. ( )

This audiobook was an enjoyable cook's tour of one hundred notable women in history. Written in contemporary snark with plenty of profanity, it is probably the best, if not only, way to learn about important women who history forgot in 2018. This book was ideal to listen to on short trips in the car since the entry on each woman was just a few minutes long. I laughed out loud quite a few times. My only complaint is that I would have liked to learn more about some of these women, but without a list of their names, many of them from cultures and languages different than my own, I was unable to determine how to spell them for future reference. A list of the names on the cover would have substantially increased my enjoyment of the book. ( )

This audiobook is informative and will have you laughing out loud on your morning commute. The narrator has a perky British accent that becomes ironic when she’s tossing off comments like, “Everyone knows you can’t do mathematics without a prick.” Saucy and sometimes inappropriate, this book is an affirmation of the power of women through history. The only downside of the audio book is that there were passages I’d like to have been able to quote to friends, and I don’t have the ability to remember them. ( )
