Announcing Anita and Ebony’s Upcoming Book, History vs. Women: The Defiant Lives That They Don’t Want You to Know

We are so thrilled to finally be able to share with you a project that Anita and Ebony have been working on for a long time. Coming this October, History vs. Women is a captivating collection of stories about the lives of 25 extraordinary women whose tales have rarely been told. These true stories of innovation, heroism, brilliance, and sometimes villainy, take us around the world and across the centuries, reminding us that women have been accomplishing incredible things and living extraordinary lives for as long as human beings have existed.

In these pages, a Mongolian wrestler stands shoulder-to-shoulder with a baseball phenom, and a Chinese pirate keeps company with a British prime minister. The women included could hardly be more different from each other, yet each of them defied the cultural limitations placed on them and went on to achieve the incredible. As the lives of these women demonstrate, there’s no reason why our media shouldn’t be full of stories of incredible women, because women have always been incredible. History vs. Women also features gorgeous illustrations of each of its subjects, bringing these women to vibrant life. Some of them lived centuries ago, yet their legacy resounds through time, and even today can help us shake off the shackles of limiting, culturally constructed stereotypes to remind us of what’s really possible.

History vs. Women: The Defiant Lives That They Don’t Want You to Know by Anita Sarkeesian and Ebony Adams will be released on October 2nd, 2018. Pre-order it today!
