Badass of the week – Cloelia (yeah, I’ve never heard of her either)

photo credit: Wikipedia- Doesn't look like a stealthy escape to me...

The next time your teenage daughter talks back to you, think of this woman. Sometime around 509 B.C., before it became the world dominating powerhouse we’ve all heard that it was, Rome was getting its’ ass handed to it on a regular basis by a group of people known as the Etruscans. This woman (barely) was single handedly responsible for ending the continuous bitch-slapping of Rome. The lady balls that she had shown in this story earned her a place of honor among the Romans – a first for a woman in this era.

Many past and current secretaries of state have nothing on this woman when it comes to heroism and conflict resolution between countries. Whatever you do, don’t let your daughter read about this girl – you think she’s giving you attitude now? Just wait until she sees what an in-your-face teenager can accomplish when applied at full strength!

Cloelia, you are truly my Badass of the Week!
