Well-behaved women seldom make history. ~ Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

I love reading biographies of scandalous women, not bad people, but women who have raised a few eyebrows.

Women are usually put down for drawing attention to themselves or acting unladylike. We’re told not to speak up, not to make waves, not to love freely. It’s OK if men do it, though. Well, I say, “phooey.”

For having a mind of their own, women are often called names like know-it-all, smarty pants, bitch, witch, hussy, whore, trollop, and worse. When in reality, they are really women who dare to do things. They go against convention regardless of what anyone thinks and despite authority.

Call me what you will, but I’d rather be a scandalous woman than a boring one.

Here are some tips on how to be scandalous in the best possible way.

Leave your mark on the world.
Defy the rules.
Attract attention wherever you go.
Make men swoon.
Disturb the peace.
Turn heads.
Make waves.
Stick up for yourself.
Answer back.
Question everything.
Take risks.
Make history.
Make money, lots of it.
Love hard.
Have ideas.
Use your brains.
Fight crime, oppression, and discrimination.
Be the best.
Live with passion.
Burn so brightly it’s blinding.
Be whatever you want to be.
