Publisher's Summary

Women's stories are often written as if they spent their entire time on Earth casting woeful, but beautiful, glances towards the horizon and sighing into the bitter wind at the thought of any conflict. Well, that's not how it f--king happened.

When you hear about a woman who was 100% pure and good, you're probably missing the best chapters in her life's story. Maybe she slept around. Maybe she stole. Maybe she crashed planes. Maybe she got shot, or maybe she shot a bad guy (who probably had it coming). Maybe she caused a scandal. Maybe she caused a riot....

From badass writer Hannah Jewell, She Caused a Riot is an empowering, no-holds-barred look into the epic adventures and dangerous exploits of 100 inspiring women who were too brave, too brilliant, too unconventional, too political, too poor, not ladylike enough, and not white enough to be recognized by their shitty contemporaries.

From third-century Syrian queen Zenobia to 20-century Nigerian women's rights activist Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, these are women who gave absolutely zero f--ks and will inspire a courageous new movement of women to do the same.

Horrible narrator choice!

I really wanted to like this book. There's a lot of interesting information in it, and all of the women are women I've never heard of. But the way the chapters are broken up leave much to be desired. And the woman reading? Good Lord, could she have sounded anymore boring while reading. The content could've been so much better presented, namely by someone who didn't sound like they were reading the local phone book.
