Title: A tyranny of pettitcoats: 15 stories of belles, bank robbers & other badass girls
By: Jennifer Spottswood (ed.)

A tour through history narrated by fifteen young women give us a glimpse of what their lives were like during important moments in American history. From pirates in the British colonies, the Yukon Territory, Deadwood South Dakota, and finally to 1968 Chicago, these stories show readers that girls can be powerful no matter what time period they live in. Historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich said it best: "Well-behaved women seldom make history."
