In honor of #InternationalWomensDay2020, check out some of the absolute badass bitches whose stories we love to tell, like Taytu Betel, who, to this day, "remains a linguistic legend in Italy. The phrase “Chi si crede di essere, la regina Taitu?” (“Who does she think she is, the Empress Taytu?”) is still used to describe women who act like they’re above their station."

Read her story and the tales of other incredible women: https://museumhack.com/general/badass-bitches/
