SHE-DEVILS

100 Women Who Turned the World Upside Down

by Heer , Carina

It doesn’t take much to be considered a she-devil—at least in the eyes of men, that is. And there’s no pact with the devil required either. It’s enough to be particularly adventurous, reckless, or generally particularly gifted and successful—except, of course, in typically female domains like languages, needlework, and, uh, listening or something. That women can be downright intelligent sometimes is yesterday’s news. But can they also be courageous? More ruthless than Lehmann Brothers? Funnier than Jimmy Fallon? Cooler than James Dean? Or even cruel, psychopathic, and driven by the desire to kill? No doubt about it!

For all of those who have long since suspected that and especially for those who cannot believe it,Carina Heer presents portraits of a multitude of different—famous and less famous—women from all eras and countries with a good portion of humor andirony. Women like Gisela Werner, the leader of the most dangerous gang of  bankrobbersofthepost-waryears,ortheinfamouspirateMaryRead.Butofcourse, names such as Cleopatra, Marie Curie, and Bonnie Parker can’t be left out—just to name a few of the ladies we definitely ought to meet(again)!

With portraits of Grace O’Malley,Himiko, ZhengShi,ZenobiaofPalmyra,AmeliaEarhart, MargaretThatcher,Xanthippe,SophieScholl,

Simone de Beauvoir, Mata Hari, Hildegard vonBingen,HannahArendt,CalamityJane, and manymore…
