'Who says that daughters cannot be heroic?' Once upon a time, history was written by men, for men and about men. Women were deemed less important, their letters destroyed, their stories ignored. Not any more. This is the story of women who went to war, women who stopped war and women who stayed at home. The rulers. The fighters. The activists. The writers. This is the story of Wu Zetian, who as 'Chinese Emperor' helped to spread Buddhism in China. This is the story of Genghis Khan's powerful daughters, who ruled his empire for him. This is the story of Christine de Pizan, one of the earliest feminist writers. This is the story of Victoria Woodhull, who ran for president before she could even vote for one. This is the story of the world - with the women put back in.

Kerstin Lucker, Ute Daenschel, Ruth Ahmedzai

Kerstin Lucker and Ute Daenschel met while doing their PhDs in Berlin, where they worked together side by side every day, often swapping their essays with each other. This worked so well that they decided to write a book - and so A History of the World with the Women Put Back In was born. Ruth Ahmedzai Kemp and Jessica West are freelance translators with a shared love of history; this is the third book they've co-translated from German. Natsko Seki studied illustration at the University of Brighton. She draws her inspiration from architecture and people from different ages and cultures.
