"Bad Girls Throughout History tells the story of amazing women who broke the social shackles and played their roles in changing the world for the better. Ann Shen shows women can play great roles in history only after going against the prevailing social norms. The women who changed this world were considered bad by their contemporaries. It is a very important addition to the existing literature on women studies and feminism." - Sarah Kahn, Washington Book Review

"For her first book, illustrator and graphic designer Ann Shen painted 100 women who defied rules throughout history. Her watercolor portraits and accompanying essays depict famously celebrated women (Maya Angelou, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Oprah) as well as those with more obscure stories: She draws Annie Edson Taylor, an adventurer who became the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls (in a barrel, at age 63), and the 19th-century pirate captain Ching Shih, who terrorized the British empire while commanding more than 1,500 ships on the China Sea." - NYMag.com The Cut

"Book, I'm going to go ahead and give you an A+ here-you are just delightful in every sense of the word. I loved learning about new-to-me historical women, I loved your art, and I loved the way you introduced us all with insouciance and wit. Go straight to the top of the class!" - ForeverYoungAdult.com

"From Joan of Arc and Jane Austen, to more modern trailblazers like Angela Davis and Tina Fey, Bad Girls Throughout History: 100 Remarkable Women Who Changed the World includes ONE HUNDRED (!!!!) women who will no doubt inspire you, as well as remind you that women RULE." - HelloGiggles.com

"Working from the Laurel Thatcher Ulrich adage "Well-behaved women seldom make history," this is a gorgeously illustrated collection of short bios about famous and lesser-known historical figures, including Anna May Wong, the first Asian-American movie star, and Aphra Behn, the first female professional writer." - BookRiot.com
