How does a woman become a mistress? This unique collection of inspirational stories from Amazing People Worldwide® tells you the inside stories. It turns the traditional concept of a mistress on its head. Meet controversial Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre's lover who wrote numerous influential books and papers, and challenged what was seen as the woman's role on a number of levels. Come face-to-face with Emilie du Chatelet, the mistress of Voltaire who used her gender to her advantage and also defied convention. Marina Gamba is relatively unknown, but had three illegitimate children with Galileo, the great scientist. Read the captivating story of Madame de Pompadour, who rose from a relatively unassuming life to be the undisputed mistress of King Louis XV. She held a very influential position behind the scenes at court! Each of these amazing women took risks and negotiated their personal lives in such a way that enabled them to live extraordinary lives. Each story comes to life through BioViews®. These are short biographical narratives, similar to interviews. They provide an easy way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.
