Who Run the World? Bad Girls & Ann Shen

Bad Girls Throughout History includes the stories of Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer (not just the first female programmer, but the first ever); Marie Curie, the first woman to win the Novel Prize; Joan Jett, the godmother of punk; and, Shen’s favorite, Harriet Tubman, who “escaped slavery, [became] the first women to lead a charge in the Civil War, made over a dozen trips in the Underground Railroad to free slaves, spoke in support of women’s suffrage and donated her home to become a hospice for elderly African Americans.”
