In the game of chess, the strongest piece?the Queen?is often referred to as ?bitch, ? and being female has been long considered a major disadvantage. Chess Bitch, written by the 2004 U.S. Woman's Chess Champion, is an eyeopening account of how today's young female chess players are successfully knocking down the doors to this traditionally male game, infiltrating the maleowned sporting subculture of international chess, and giving the phrase ?play like a girl? a whole new meaning. Through interviews with and observation of the young globetrotting women chess players who challenge male domination, Chess Bitch shines a harsh light on the game's gender bias. For those who think of chess as two people sitting quietly across a table, Shahade paints a colorful world that most chess fans never knew existed.
