Bad Girls and Wicked Women Summary

Bad Girls and Wicked Women by Jan Stradling

Bad Girls & Wicked Women: The Most Powerful, Shocking, Amazing, Thrilling & Dangerous Women of All Time is an historic survey of 22 of the most ruthless and ambitious women in history. These are sassy, brilliant, magnetic, cunning and tough-as-nails women who defied the social mores of their eras. Each gripping story speaks for itself: Queen Mary I who did 'what it took' to protect Catholicism in England, to Madame Mao who became one of communist China's most powerful and feared leaders to Georgia Tann who, as a director of the Tennessee Children's Home, made millions selling babies on the black market. These anti-heroines battled against the odds and often against the status quo, succeeding in turning the power structure, if only for a short time, directly on its head. Some were cruel, some were visionary and some were blinded by ambition or love.
