What's Her Name: A History of the World in 80 Lost Women

Katie Nelson

What if some of the most phenomenal lives in human history were, for centuries, forgotten? For centuries, the achievements of countless influential women have remained overshadowed. Sisters Katie Nelson and Olivia Meikle traverse hundreds of years and six continents, from antiquity to modern times, to turn the spotlight on these unsung heroines, revealing their stories and celebrating their indelible impact on the world.
This mesmerizing compendium highlights the captivating stories of eighty women, including Fatima al-Fihri, the visionary behind the world's first university; Ching Shih, the most successful pirate; and Huda Sha'arawi, a leading Egyptian suffragist. What's Her Name is a compelling tribute to the indomitable spirit and contributions of these women who have shaped history--and deserve to be remembered and commemorated.
