Blog tour: Forgotten Women

Welcome to the blog tour for Forgotten Women by Zing Tsjeng!

More about the book… 

A compendium of women who shaped and were erased from our history.

Forgotten Women reaches around the world and its history to rediscover, retell and reinstate the lives of over 190 important and significant women. From Neolithic times to modernity, Zing Tsjeng has traced the women who have shaped their age and revolutionised society.

In this book lies the strength, lives and sacrifices of women who have refused to accept the hand they’ve been dealt and have changed the course of our futures accordingly.

More about the author…

Zing Tsjeng is the editor in chief of VICE UK and the author of the Forgotten Women book series.

She specialises in women’s and LGBTQ rights, politics, culture and lifestyle.

She is also a documentary host and podcaster, her recent podcast for the BBC was entitled Forgotten Zingdom and she interviews for publications such as Vogue, Dazed, and The Guardian.

My impressions…

What a treasure chest of a book! I can’t believe how few of these women I was aware of, and I am determined that it will be exactly the opposite for my daughters. A very important collection of short but insightful biographies that I was able to dip in and out of whenever I had a few free minutes throughout the day.

Three words to describe it. Inspirational. Educational. Necessary.

Do I like the cover? A feast for the eyes but also amazing to the touch!

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, and I don’t understand why nobody told me about her before!
