“Well-behaved women seldom make history” - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
And yet the stories of badass women throughout history are often overlooked. Ignored. Swept under the carpet. History is rich with female pirates, crusaders, survivors, and assassins. So where are their stories?
They are here: NOTORIOUS WOMEN. An exploration of the motivation behind some of the most notorious women in history; an in-depth look at what made them tick. And snap.
What inspires a woman to sell her estate and buy a fleet of ships with one mission: to brutally murder every French sailor she encounters?
What gives a pioneer woman the strength to remove her own rib rather than face certain death?
What enrages a woman to build an army of her own when her husband and father are called to war?
We want to take a deeper look at HERstory: a raw, gut-wrenching, soul-baring look at survival, by any means necessary. NOTORIOUS WOMEN is an anthology series, each season exploring a new courageous, brutal, strong woman who defied the confines of her gender and seriously kicked ass.
