One of the most fascinating trivia books for women. Did you know that women outnumber men by five to one in shoplifting convictions? Or that researchers at Northwestern University found that men change their minds two to three times more than women? Women of Interest spans history, crosses cultures, ranges from the silly to the salacious to the truly useful and back again. Designed to delight the feminist in you, this outrageously funny book is organized into ten trivia-filled chapters covering all sorts of humorous histories and fun facts. Ideal for trivia games for adults or feminist gifts, now women really can know everything. Feminist, funny gifts for women. It' s time to challenge that know-it-all girlfriend, or grab the ultimate bathroom reader for your feminist BFF. Whether you' re searching for feminist books or trivia books, Women of Interest makes a wonderful addition to trivia games and bookshelves alike. Inside, you' ll learn that:Diamonds didn' t become a girl' s best friend until the thirteenth century. Before that, they were for men only. Zazel, a woman, was the first human cannonball. She launched into the air through a giant spring inside a cannon. Marilyn Monroe was the very first Artichoke Queen in the artichoke capital of the world. If you enjoy comedy books, trivia books for adults, or funny gifts for her and enjoyed titles such as What If, 399 Games Puzzles & Trivia Challenges, Uncle John' s Truth Trivia and the Pursuit of Factiness, The Woman' s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets, or Thank You for Being a Friend: A Golden Girls Trivia Book then you' ll love Women of Interest.
