    This book is a beautiful and essential addition to any library. Captivating art? Check. A good mix of famous, infamous, and obscure women who changed the world? Check. Diversity? Check. I feel massively inspired after finishing Brazen, so five stars it is!!! ...

    A collection of 29 brief biographies, this is Bagieu's exercise in chronicling the lives of women throughout the world, and throughout history, that bucked the system or defined themselves on their own terms. This project began as a series of webcomics posted on Le Monde's blog, and al...

    I will be purchasing a copy for my home library. It is perfection. ...

    I loved learning about the extraordinary women in this graphic novel. This is a truly inspiring collection of portraits of female pioneers, inventors, and great minds presented with sensitivity and humor. I'll be recommending this to all my teens (and adults)! ...

    Highly entertaining and wildly illustrated. Multiple woman from all walks of life and time periods all overcome some form of adversity to achieve great success. ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 4.5* This was super informative and fun, and also, so very pretty. If learning about some badass ladies from the days of yore is your thing, then I definitely think this...

    A strong set of enjoyable vignettes about unconventionally noteworthy women from throughout the world. ...

    I've seen so many of these types of books published now and they usually are the same thing. They have nice art, but they usually have a one page short bio of a woman you most likely heard about making their life seem like nothing bad ever happened. It gets repetitive and annoying. Do ...

    What fun! I don't read a lot of graphic novels, only ones that catch my eye, and for some reason this one did. The author has picked 29 "brazen" women and tells their life stories in short chapters with delightful, quirky drawings. The subjects' names are listed in the table of con...

    Loved this! I've read a couple of these non-fiction titles that do brief profiles of influential women in history, both well-known and hardly known at all, but this one's my favorite so far. Both the delightful art and the comedic style set Brazen apart from similar titles. I laughe...

    I really liked this. It kept surprising me by how great it was and each chapter was as good as the last. Just the right amount of depth with each piece and pictures that added to the text and followed the show not tell rule. I kept having to pause my reading as I googled pictures or ad...

    Delightful, something to read if you are in need of cheering up. One of my favorite books of 2018 so far. ...

    I loved learning about the extraordinary women in this graphic novel. This is a truly inspiring collection of portraits of female pioneers, inventors, and great minds presented with sensitivity and humor. I'll be recommending this to all my teens (and adults)! ...

    Highly entertaining and wildly illustrated. Multiple woman from all walks of life and time periods all overcome some form of adversity to achieve great success. ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 4.5* This was super informative and fun, and also, so very pretty. If learning about some badass ladies from the days of yore is your thing, then I definitely think this...

    A strong set of enjoyable vignettes about unconventionally noteworthy women from throughout the world. ...

    What fun! I don't read a lot of graphic novels, only ones that catch my eye, and for some reason this one did. The author has picked 29 "brazen" women and tells their life stories in short chapters with delightful, quirky drawings. The subjects' names are listed in the table of con...

    Loved this! I've read a couple of these non-fiction titles that do brief profiles of influential women in history, both well-known and hardly known at all, but this one's my favorite so far. Both the delightful art and the comedic style set Brazen apart from similar titles. I laughe...

    I really liked this. It kept surprising me by how great it was and each chapter was as good as the last. Just the right amount of depth with each piece and pictures that added to the text and followed the show not tell rule. I kept having to pause my reading as I googled pictures or ad...

    You know I wasn?t sure if this was going to be good or bad. I?m impressed! Also, this review does get political. First, my thoughts on feminism: I fully support equality and believe that women can be just as smart, strong, brave, etc. as men but modern feminism gets out of hand...

    There are a ton of books, of late, that are about famous women. And not to knock any of them, but after a while, all of them go over the same women. You get her Harriat Tubmans, and your Helen Kellers, and your Anne Franks. This book doesn't go after the ladies you have heard about...

    ???? This is 110% my new favorite book! It's filled with stories about incredible women who stood against all odds and shaped our history. They are intelligent, strong, brave, kind, fierce, beautiful and independent, every one of them! I don't really know what to say, ex...

    With her characteristic wit and dazzling drawings, Pnlope Bagieu profiles the lives of formidable female role models, some world famous, some little known. From Nellie Bly to Mae Jemison, or Josephine Baker to Naziq al-Abid, their stories are sure to inspire the next generation of ...

    A copy was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review BRAZEN is a graphic novel I would have loved to have read when I was little. In school we're surrounded by male authority figures and rarely do we here in depth biographies of amazing women throu...

    I don't have anything bad to say about this. I loved the illustrations, the colors.. oh and the stories about the ladies who rocked the world. ...

    I loved the art and I loved (most) of the stories! There were quite a few of them that made me tear up with pride that these women are a part of history, only wishing that more people knew their stories ...

    I'm sure it's partially due to having a really tough week, but I got so emotional reading this book. There were several points throughout reading this today that I got choked up...I was so overwhelmed by the successes of these women, the obstacles they faced, their brains, their panach...

    You know I wasn?t sure if this was going to be good or bad. I?m impressed! Also, this review does get political. First, my thoughts on feminism: I fully support equality and believe that women can be just as smart, strong, brave, etc. as men but modern feminism gets out of hand...

    There are a ton of books, of late, that are about famous women. And not to knock any of them, but after a while, all of them go over the same women. You get her Harriat Tubmans, and your Helen Kellers, and your Anne Franks. This book doesn't go after the ladies you have heard about...

    In this wonderful illustrated novel, we are presented with a collection of 29 brief biographies, of various women through history, who displayed "The Right Stuff". Tough, smart, bold, courageous and wildly creative. There are a few women here, that are well-known but most of them have ...

    3.5 stars How can you create all these mini-bios and not have any back matter in your book?! And I'm concerned about the way some of the profiles are represented (esp a few of the POC). Planning on doing some research and rereading certain sections. ...

    Read this book!!!! Not going to write a review at the moment. But also read this review by Emma!!! https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... Here is a quote from it: "his book contains: trans women, gay women, bi women, straight women, pan women, black women, asian women, n...

    This book is a beautiful and essential addition to any library. Captivating art? Check. A good mix of famous, infamous, and obscure women who changed the world? Check. Diversity? Check. I feel massively inspired after finishing Brazen, so five stars it is!!! ...

    A collection of 29 brief biographies, this is Bagieu's exercise in chronicling the lives of women throughout the world, and throughout history, that bucked the system or defined themselves on their own terms. This project began as a series of webcomics posted on Le Monde's blog, and al...

    I will be purchasing a copy for my home library. It is perfection. ...

    I loved learning about the extraordinary women in this graphic novel. This is a truly inspiring collection of portraits of female pioneers, inventors, and great minds presented with sensitivity and humor. I'll be recommending this to all my teens (and adults)! ...

    Highly entertaining and wildly illustrated. Multiple woman from all walks of life and time periods all overcome some form of adversity to achieve great success. ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 4.5* This was super informative and fun, and also, so very pretty. If learning about some badass ladies from the days of yore is your thing, then I definitely think this...

    A strong set of enjoyable vignettes about unconventionally noteworthy women from throughout the world. ...

    I've seen so many of these types of books published now and they usually are the same thing. They have nice art, but they usually have a one page short bio of a woman you most likely heard about making their life seem like nothing bad ever happened. It gets repetitive and annoying. Do ...

    What fun! I don't read a lot of graphic novels, only ones that catch my eye, and for some reason this one did. The author has picked 29 "brazen" women and tells their life stories in short chapters with delightful, quirky drawings. The subjects' names are listed in the table of con...

    Loved this! I've read a couple of these non-fiction titles that do brief profiles of influential women in history, both well-known and hardly known at all, but this one's my favorite so far. Both the delightful art and the comedic style set Brazen apart from similar titles. I laughe...

    I really liked this. It kept surprising me by how great it was and each chapter was as good as the last. Just the right amount of depth with each piece and pictures that added to the text and followed the show not tell rule. I kept having to pause my reading as I googled pictures or ad...

    Delightful, something to read if you are in need of cheering up. One of my favorite books of 2018 so far. ...

    Excellent selection of subjects, and wonderful artwork! ...

    A great fun book of graphic stories about women who dared. Best of all they aren't all the usual ones! And, they are from all around the world as well as various time periods. The art is marvelous. Great for dipping into when you have a spare 10 or 15 minutes. ...

    Loved it. Brilliant book. Amazing stories. Beautiful art. Enjoyed every minute of reading this. ? ...
