Hannah Jewell, who dubs herself a time-traveling fangirl journalist, does not mince words as she presents women's lives across time, culture, and country. Narrator Rachael Beresford gives Jewell's brief accounts and cheeky humor full expression. While the title touts 100 unknown women, listeners will likely recognize figures such as Sappho, Hatshepsut, and Josephine Baker, among others, in this diverse collection of female figures relegated to the sidelines of history. Listeners are drawn along as fellow discoverers of ancient queens, aviators, scientists, social advocates, and more, who bucked conventions and restrictions to achieve their goals. This production delivers entertaining glimpses of the lives of brilliant, bold, and complex women, and may inspire further exploration.
