Badass Women to Live Your Life by from the Celtic Nations of Scotland, Ireland and Wales

Throughout history, the women of the Celtic nations of Scotland, Ireland and Wales have risen to challenge and proved themselves to be seriously badass.

JACKIE CROOKSTON banged the drum for fair treatment for her fellow Scots and paid with her life.

ANNE BONNY swashbuckled her way from Ireland to the Bahamas as a real-life pirate of the Caribbean.

BETTY CAMPBELL stood up to racism to teach the children – and win the hearts – of Wales.

Feisty, fiery and fierce in every way, the ‘her-stories’ of these Celtic sisters – from prophets to photographers, artists to activists – will inspire you to face your own modern-day dilemmas in true badass style.
