From Booklist:

Okay, you've heard of Sappho, Nefertiti, maybe even the pharaoh Hatshepsut and the warrior queen Tomyris. But what about the murderous Macedonian queen Arsinoe, the Talmudic teacher Beruria, the Greek priestess Lysimache, or Audata-Eurydice, Philip of Macedon's horse-riding Illyrian queen? And then there is Kisaya, a Sumerian slave who sued for the right to choose her own husband. Leon has collected hundreds of historical women's names and the facts about the lives of those who bore them. Where very little is known, she fleshes out the text with fascinating cultural tidbits. Rendered in a zippy tone, such stuff makes delightful reading. Patricia Monaghan

Review:

200 pyramid builders, poets, princesses and other women in positions of power over the centuries are profiled in a series of biographies concentrating on unusual women. Uppity Women of Ancient Times is an excellent, fun title which is packed with information on women who influenced history and created lasting names for themselves. -- Midwest Book Review
