For fans of Ann Shen's beloved Bad Girls Throughout History, this spiritual successor celebrates the accomplishments of these incredible women alongside Ann's signature artwork. From dancers, actors, and singers to scientists, astronauts, politicians, and activists, these women used their voices and their passions to change the world"--Shen profiles women of color who pushed the boundaries, rewrote the rules, and led the way for the women in the communities to follow in their footsteps. From the big screen to the halls of NASA; from the courts of the US Open to the Supreme Court, these short (one- to three-page) articles will inspire you to embrace your authentic self and live your life in full color. -- adapted from back cover
