The image of the strong female has been a pervasive one in literature through time. From Medea to Lisbeth Salander to Katniss Everdeen- we are eternally enthralled with what it takes to fight like a girl. More than just weapons in hand, we explore just what a girl's got to do to make her way in the world and through some hairy situations. This short story anthology explores the strong female protagonist in a genre where the female is typically the 'damsel in distress'. From warriors to librarians, mothers to thieves- they all have what it takes to fight like a girl.
