Badass Women: Nancy Wake

Today’s Women History Month tribute is dedicated to World War II spy Nancy Wake.

Wake worked as a freelance journalist before becoming a courier and escort for Allied soldiers and refugees. She was trained by the British Special Operations Executive and saved the lives of hundreds of soldiers.

“I don’t see why we women should just wave our men a proud goodbye and then knit them balaclavas.”
