Hannah Jewell is a former BuzzFeed writer you might know from such viral articles as 12 Historical Women Who Gave No F**ks and 14 Badass Historical Women to Name your Daughters After. These days, Jewell is a pop culture journalist at the Washington Post and the author of a debut book titled, 100 Nasty Women of History – Brilliant, Badass and Completely Fearless Women Everyone Should Know. The title takes its inspiration from the slur that Donald Trump made against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential debate, which has since been reclaimed and adopted as a badge of honour by women around the world. This is a worthy title and volume because for too long women have either been erased or canonised by the history books. Jewell is trying to redress this wrong by writing about these complex, imperfect, and inspiring women so that they may for once be celebrated in all of their glory.
