Description
"Fun, cheeky" (Booklist), and a visual delight, What Would Cleopatra Do? shares the wisdom and advice passed down from Cleopatra, Queen Victoria, Dorothy Parker, and forty-seven other heroines from past eras on how to handle common problems women have encountered throughout history and still face today.What Would Cleopatra Do? tackles issues by reminding us of inspiring feminists from the past, telling their stories with warmth, humor, and verve. From sticking up for yourself, improving body image, deciding whether to have children, finding a mentor, getting dumped, feeling like an imposter, being unattractive, and dealing with gossip, we can learn a lot by reading motivational stories of heroic women who, living in much tougher times through history, took control of their own destinies and made life work for them. Here are Cleopatra's thoughts on sibling rivalry, Mae West on positive body image, Frida Kahlo on finding your style, Catherine the Great on dealing with gossip, Agatha Christie on getting dumped, Hedy Lamarr on being underestimated—to list only a few—as well as others who address dilemmas including career-planning, female friendship, loneliness, financial management, and political engagement. Featuring whimsical illustrations by L.A.-based artist Bijou Karman, What Would Cleopatra Do? is a distinctive, witty, and gift-worthy tribute to history's outstanding women.

      • content: Authors Elizabeth Foley and Beth Coates team up on a delightful compilation of feminine advice for today's women. Using the stories of 50 heroines throughout history, they blend antiquity with contemporary concerns. Narrator Madeleine Maby's approach is poised and friendly yet sophisticated in tone. She recounts each iconic woman's story with clarity, adding a playful tone as she explains how each lesson applies to the life of today's woman. Maby's articulation and pitch help differentiate the exemplary women and the courageous examples they set. The message to love oneself and break through societal barriers comes together perfectly in this engaging listen on female resourcefulness and empowerment. D.Z. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
