As a male, I must admit that I am always taken aback when I find there are women who are as aggressive as men. Politically Powerful Women will disabuse men of such false notions about the gentle sex. Flatt's extensive research strips away the façade of conventional historic pabulum and reveals their grit.
All of these women were extremely ambitious and determined to succeed despite the fact that many lived in a world far less accepting of women in power than is true today. Many did not hesitate to be ruthless, cruel and even murderous to rise to power, keep a grip on it and ensure the succession of their progeny.
If you like history that brings to life flesh and blood characters, this book is an enjoyable, enlightening read and very worth your time.
