International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day, which is kind of a big deal around here, because if you hadn’t noticed, feminism is kind of our jam.  And the icing on the already awesome March 8th cake (there should definitely be actual Women’s Day cake), is that today is also the official publication day of Laura Barcella’s Fight like a Girl: 50 Feminists Who Changed the World.

FightlikeagirlFrom Mary Wollstonecraft to Beyonce and Oprah to Judy Blume, Fight Like a Girl  highlights women who are traditionally recognized as being change makers, and those who haven’t always gotten the recognition that they deserve.  Short but thorough profiles of all 50 women, including soundbites about why each is “awesome,” are featured alongside beautifully rendered portraits, eye-opening sidebars on related topics and iconic quotes.

This book gives necessary and insightful context to a lot of the conversations we’re having about women, feminism, and reproductive rights right now.  So to celebrate how amazing women are today, we say you treat yo self to an amazing read.  Happy book birthday to Fight Like a Girl!
