Mackenzi Lee - Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the World — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Thursday, March 22, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Rulers, scientists, activists, artists—women have done it all, and they’re finally getting credit for it. Drawing from her weekly Twitter series, Lee gives us a year’s worth of brave, transgressive, fascinating women, from Hatshepsut (c. 1508-1458 BCE), the second female pharaoh of ancient Egypt, to Emma Nother (1882-1935), a German mathematician who made vital contributions to theoretical physics, to Stagecoach Mary Fields (1832-1914), the first African-American woman star route-mail carrier in the United States. Lee, author of the historical fantasy novels This Monstrous Thing and The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, writes with humor and style, giving us great stories as well as inspiring examples.
