Regular price $29.99 $0.00 Unit price per

In this eye-opening compendium filled with keen and witty observations, writer, actor, and feminist Tracy Dawson showcases trailblazers throughout history who disguised themselves as men and continuously broke the rules to gain access and opportunities denied them because they were women.

Let Me Be Frank brings together the incredible stories of diverse groups of women from different ethnicities and cultural backgrounds who have defied the patriarchy, refusing to allow men to define their lives or break their spirit. From the dawn of time to today, women have been told, “No, you can’t.” Tracy Dawson knows this all too well; she experienced it while trying to break into television writing. If Hollywood—and literally every patriarchal space throughout history—won’t allow women to sit alongside men and prosper, women have no choice but to take matters into their own hands. Whether living in 1478 BC or later, the courageous and determined women profiled in this inspiring anthology refused to let society define their actions and worth or deny them achievement because they weren’t men.
