      Synopsis Part of the Outrageous Women series for kids ages , this book examines the amazing lives of the women of the American frontier. From the Back Cover Incredible true stories of the most amazing women in American history They were courageous, resourceful pioneers 1/5(1). Even though I adore ancient history, the format of most history books is, well, boring. Uppity Women of Ancient Times defies all sterotypes, though. With over two hundred women in this book, she dosn't get much room to talk about the individuals, but her wording is brief, modern, and perfectly hilarious/5(18).

    However, Macdonald does go into more specific detail about women's status and occupations than the other books. She devotes a little space to a discussion of ancient Greek and Egyptian individuals, but Vicki Leon's Outrageous Women of Ancient Times (Wiley, ) provides much more detail and is more entertaining.-Rebecca O'Connell, Carnegie /5(3).   Domestic violence has been a harsh reality for women for thousands of years. In my latest novel, The Novice, the underlying theme is domestic violence. I wanted to demonstrate the cycle of violence. If a woman in medieval times could free herself from the cycle of abuse, today’s women can choose to do the same.
