“Warriors and Wenches” by Michelle Rosenberg

Blurb:
Often faced with limited life choices, this book proudly showcases those women who took matters into their own hands and became forces to be reckoned with.
These are women you SHOULD know about. Love them or loathe them, they made their mark. From cross dressing soldiers to scheming mistresses and courtesans, Warriors and Wenches offers up an indulgent romp through centuries of history, from widows turned tank drivers bent on bloody vengeance and fierce martial arts fighters, to women who magnificently and outrageously turned their social lot in life to their advantage: the mistresses, courtesans and uniquely French maitresse-en-titres who wielded incredible power and influence in the sumptuous courts of Europe.

My Thoughts:

This little book is a great collection of snapshots of courageous women who wanted to live life on their own terms. While brief, these biographical sketches were engaging and informative. This book would be a great jumping off point for further research and inspiration.
