Discover 50 fascinating tales of female pirates, fraudsters, gamblers, bootleggers, serial killers, madams, and outlaws in this illustrated book of lawbreaking and legendary women throughout the ages.

Many of us are familiar with the popular slogan Well-behaved women seldom make history. But that adage is taken to the next level in this book, which looks at women from the past who weren't afraid to break the law or challenge gender norms. From pirates to madams, gamblers to bootleggers, and serial killers to outlaws, women throughout the ages haven't always decided to be sugar, spice, and everything nice.

In Lawbreaking Ladies, author Erika Owen tells the stories of 50 remarkable women whose rebellious and often criminal acts ought to solidify their place in history, including: - The swashbuckling pirate Ching Shih - Queen of the Bootleggers Gloria de Casares - The Prohibition-era gangster Stephanie Saint-Clair - And a band of prisoners who came to be known as the Goree Girls

The perfect gift for true crime fans and lovers of little-known women's history, Lawbreaking Ladies serves as an engaging and informative guide to gals who were daring, defiant, and sometimes downright dangerous.
