Blending the iconoclastic feminism of The Notorious RBG and the confident irreverence of Go the F**ck to Sleep, a brazen and empowering illustrated collection that celebrates inspirational badass women throughout history, based on the popular Tumblr blog. Well-behaved women seldom make history. Good thing these women are far from well behaved . . . Illustrated in a contemporary animation style, Rejected Princesses turns the ubiquitous "pretty pink princess" stereotype portrayed in movies, and on endless toys, books, and tutus on its head, paying homage instead to an awesome collection of strong, fierce, and yes, sometimes weird, women: warrior queens, soldiers, villains, spies, revolutionaries, and more who refused to behave and meekly accept their place. An entertaining mix of biography, imagery, and humor written in a fresh, young, and riotous voice, this thoroughly researched exploration salutes these awesome women drawn from both historical and fantastical realms, including real life, literature, mythology, and folklore. Each profile features an eye-catching image of both heroic and villainous women in command from across history and around the world, from a princess-cum-pirate in fifth century Denmark, to a rebel preacher in 1630s Boston, to a bloodthirsty Hungarian countess, and a former prostitute who commanded a fleet of more than 70,000 men on China’s seas.

The author of Rejected Princesses returns with an inspiring, fully illustrated guide that brings together the fiercest mothers in history—real life matriarchs who gave everything to protect all they loved. Mothers possess the "maternal instinct"—an innate fierceness that drives them to nurture, safeguard, fight, and sacrifice for the most important things that matter to them. For some mothers, it’s their children. For others, it’s artistic expression, invention, social cause, or even a nation that they helped to birth. In Tough Mothers, Jason Porath brings his wisdom and wit to bear on fifty fascinating matriarchs. In concise, deeply researched vignettes, accompanied by charming illustrations, Porath illuminates these fearsome women, explores their lives, and pays tribute to their accomplishments. Here are famous women as well as lesser known figures from around the globe who have left their indelible mark as they changed the course of history, including: The Mother Who Sued to Save Her Children from Slavery—Sojourner Truth The Mother of Rock n’ Roll—Sister Rosetta Tharpe The Mother of Holocaust Children—Irena Sendler The Mothers of The Dominican Republic—The Mirabal Sisters The Mother of Yemen’s Golden Age—Arwa al-Sulayhi A celebration of motherhood and female achievement, Tough Mothers reminds us of the power of women to transform our lives and our world.

The Mahabharat, one of the two great epics of India, depicts life on earth and human beings in all its myriad shades. There is a popular saying that what has not been depicted in the Mahabharat, be it good or bad, does not exist in life. It is the story of human beings with all their goodness and virtues as well as faults, frailties and weaknesses. In the age of the Mahabharat people lived life king-size. A son thought nothing of renouncing the throne and with it, life’s major happiness, for the sake of making his father happy. A celestial river could readily agree to go down on earth, marry a human being and give birth to eight young brothers. A princess, unfairly rejected by her lover, could pray so hard, so earnestly and for so long that Lord Shiva himself could be moved and grant her the boon of destroying the man who had ruined her happiness. A sage who is otherwise a wonderful man has such a massive ego about not keeping his promise that he demands an obnoxious and cruel sacrifice from an innocent and devoted disciple. In the Mahabharat one sees man at his best and at his worst. And how good and evil always co-exist side by side.

This edition offers true tales of these take-charge princesses plus dozens more in a fascinating read that’s perfect for history buffs, feminists, and anyone seeking a different kind of bedtime story. You think you know her story. You’ve read the Brothers Grimm, you’ve watched the Disney cartoons, and you cheered as these virtuous women lived happily ever after. But real princesses didn’t always get happy endings. Sure, plenty were graceful and benevolent leaders, but just as many were ruthless in their quest for power, and all of them had skeletons rattling in their majestic closets. Princess Stephanie von Hohenlohe was a Nazi spy. Empress Elisabeth of the Austro-Hungarian Empire slept wearing a mask of raw veal. Princess Olga of Kiev slaughtered her way to sainthood.

In this volume of 15 articles, contributors from a wide range of disciplines present their analyses of Disney movies and Disney music, which are mainstays of popular culture. The power of the Disney brand has heightened the need for academics to question whether Disney’s films and music function as a tool of the Western elite that shapes the views of those less empowered. Given its global reach, how the Walt Disney Company handles the role of race, gender, and sexuality in social structural inequality merits serious reflection according to a number of the articles in the volume. On the other hand, other authors argue that Disney productions can help individuals cope with difficult situations or embrace progressive thinking. The different approaches to the assessment of Disney films as cultural artifacts also vary according to the theoretical perspectives guiding the interpretation of both overt and latent symbolic meaning in the movies. The authors of the 15 articles encourage readers to engage with the material, showcasing a variety of views about the good, the bad, and the best way forward.

Whether you were born in the poorest home or were an unwanted child, whether you were abandoned or rejected or lost both parents at your birth, you were born a princess. However, all women are not born queens. We choose to become one. It’s not easy becoming a queen; it comes with a need of transformation, a need of change, a need of molding, and a need of building. It’s a painful process, and it’s a process that takes time. In The Making of a Queen, author Danielle Kamdeu defines the role of a queen and discusses a queen’s positive traits. Using Biblical examples, she offers insight into queens and their character, asserting that the making of a queen is about love and royalty. Being a queen comes with many responsibilities, including decision-making and disciple-building. It requires a strong woman. The Making of a Queen reminds us that a queen lives inside all of us. We belong to a loving, faithful, and powerful king who made us after his own image and likeness. Danielle shares how to journey through the challenges of this life as you successfully clothe yourself with royalty when you discover who you truly are and when you find true love.

Katherine Kinneavy is an NYPD homicide detective with a drinking problem, an Irish temper and an unflagging commitment to any case she's assigned. Wendell Roane is an ambitious reporter specializing in stories about violence against women. Joe Cataldo is an overworked Mafia underboss desperate to keep things on an even keel, lest New York's underworld regress into the wars and bloodbaths of the '30s and '70s. When a mob lieutenant and a bar owner, both with a history of unspeakable crimes against women, turn up dead on the same cold autumn morning, a vigilante group styling itself "Judith" takes credit for both killings and promises more. These three vastly different people crash into each other's orbit in search of the group, and no matter how the search ends, it may leave everything they think they know about themselves and the worlds they live in shaken to the very core.
