Meet the bold women history has tried to forget...until now! 

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. Daring and gift-worthy, this is a bold tribute to the powerful women who came before us.

"Jewell narrates the lives of these women with a righteous comic and conversational tone, and her enthusiasm is contagious...galvanizing and laugh-out-loud funny, this book is a riot on par with the women it presents. " — Booklist
"It's a history book but not a textbook, unless one's history professors are totally rad. It's funny and presented as a salve to the current injustices of the world...It provides hope that women have survived worse, and will not only roll with the punches but nevertheless persist." — Hers Magazine
