A Glimpse Behind the Façade of Rich and Famous Women

“…wild, witty, gossipy, and glamourous. A sheer delight.” ―Becca Anderson, author of Badass Women Give the Best Advice

#1 Best Seller in History, Women's Studies and Biographies of the Rich & Famous and Royalty

An intimate portrait of women of privilege. As Becca Anderson recommends, read about “heiress Barbara Hutton's outrageous lifestyle, Jackie O as a step-mom, Patty Hearst's many adventures, Peggy Guggenheim's collection of art (and men), and Almira Carnarvon, the real-life counterpart to Lady Cora of Downton Abbey. Simply Splendid.”

The Grass Isn't Greener on the Other Side. Heiresses have always been viewed with eyes of envy. They were the ones for whom the cornucopia had been upended, showering them with unimaginable wealth and opportunity. However, through intimate historical biographies, Women of Means shows us that oftentimes the weaving sisters saved their most heart-wrenching tapestries for the destinies of wealthy women.

Happily Never After. From the author of Behind Every Great Man, we now have Women of Means, vignettes of the women who were slated from birth―or marriage―to great privilege, only to endure lives which were the stuff Russian tragic heroines are made of. They are the nonfictional Richard Corys―those not slated for happily ever after.

Women of Means is a non-fiction best seller, full of the best biographies of all time. Some of the women whose silver spoons rusted include:

  • Liliane Bettencourt, whose chemist father created L’Oreal... and was a Nazi collaborator
  • Nica Rothschild, who traded her gilded life to become the Baroness of Bebop
  • Jocelyn Wildenstein, who became a cosmetology-enhanced cat-woman
  • Ruth Madoff, the dethroned queen of Manhattan
  • Patty Hearst, who trod the path from heiress... to terrorist

If you liked The Last Castle, Upstairs at the White House, or Lean In, you’ll love Women of Means.

Sara Joseph Hale-authoress of Mary had a Little Lamb- convinced Lincoln to launch a national day of thanks while Anna Jarvis persuaded President Wilson to initiate a day in tribute of mothers. Estee Lauder revolutionized the cosmetics industry. The tradition of these Mothers of Invention continued when, compliments of knitter Krista Suh, the heads of millions were adorned with pink, pussy-cat ears in the largest women's march in history. These women who launched prove-in the words of Rosie the Riveter, “We can do it!”

Biographies of women creators, innovators, and leaders: Women Who Launch is filled with inspiring true stories of women activists, artists, entrepreneurs who launched some of the most famous companies, brands, and organizations today and changed the world.

Still I Rise

By

Celebrating Women

#1 Bestseller in 21st Century U.S. History for Teens ─ Who are the Great Women Leaders in History? Who are the Women Heroes who Personify "Girl Power"?

Intrepid women heroes. When Nelson Mandela was imprisoned in South Africa’s brutal Robben Prison, he tirelessly turned to the poem Invictus. The inspirational verse by the Victorian William Ernest Henley, penned on the occasion of the amputation of his leg. Still I Rise takes its title from a work by Maya Angelou and it resonates with the same spirit of an unconquerable soul, a woman who is captain of her fate. Just as Invictus brought solace to generations so does the contemporary classic. Still I Rise embodies the strength of character of the inspiring women profiled. Each chapter will outline the fall and rise of great women heroes who smashed all obstacles, rather than let all obstacles smash them. The book offers hope to those undergoing their own Sisyphean struggles. Intrepid women heroes are the antithesis of the traditional damsels in distress; rather than waiting for the prince, they took salvation into their own hands.

Celebrate girl power! Women leaders in history celebrated in this book include:

  • Madame C. J. Walker - first female American millionaire
  • Aung San Suu Kyi - Burma’s first lady of freedom
  • Betty Shabazz - civil rights activist
  • Nellie Sachs - Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize recipient
  • Selma Lagerlof - first woman Nobel Laureate

You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down

“If you want to school yourself on the women who have paved the way for the rest of us, then this is the book for you…” −Becca Anderson, bestselling author of The Book of Awesome Women

Societal mores of sexism and misogyny have kept generations of women on the sidelines of history. But in every era, there are women who refuse to sit back in the shadows. Fabulous Female Firsts is a celebration of those women―the role models who proved that with enough daring and enough tenacity, the impossible can become possible.

Enough is Not Enough. That’s what she said. From rebel girls who refused to let their wings be clipped to the suffragettes who claimed new space for women, each trailblazer in this collection of biographies pushed the boundaries for what was possible for women in their time, even if it meant being seen as stubborn, improper, or just a trainwreck. This book is in praise of “difficult women” who made the world a better place.

Feminism Throughout History. Maybe you know their names, but do you know their stories? You’ll find inspiration in the company of women. This collection includes the stories of some of the most fabulous women in world history, including Aretha Franklin, Sandra Day O’Connor, Lucy Walker, Sally Ride, Kathryn Bigelow, Misty Copeland, Viola Desmond, Pauli Murray, Emma Gatewood, General Anna Hays, Junko Tabei, and Gertrude Ederle.

Young readers and people of all ages who are inspired by The Diary of Anne Frank and the life of Harriet Tubman will find new heroes in this book. If you enjoyed feminist books like The Book of Awesome Women, Bad Girls Throughout History, and Behind Every Great Man, you’ll love the inspiring stories in Fabulous Female Firsts: The Trailblazers Who Led the Way.
