Summary :

Handsome Heroines is a dashing collection of stories based on classic folktales from around the world with one thing in common: all of the protagonists are women who masquerade as men. They dress like men for various reasons - to save king, country, kin, and their own lives or to get revenge, love, and power. Sometimes they just do it for fun. After receiving recognition for their achievements as men, they reveal their true gender, shattering the myth of the helpless female and thereby transforming their status as women forever.
