The Gift of Reading

We always want our gifts to reflect the character of the person receiving them. Do you know a strong, independent, powerful woman? Are you at a loss of what to get them? Not sure what gift would really capture just how much they inspire you?

chandleroleary_jessicaspring_deadfeminists_book_169pxCheck out Dead Feminists by Jessica Springs and Chandler O Leary. This book is dedicated to exploring the lives of 27 powerful and inspiration woman in history that the history books tend gloss over. Each chapter is centered around a call to action and is an intricate exploration of the way feminism has transformed over the years. Including artwork, lettering, and archival photographs the reader is able to really educate themselves on the lives of the 27 women and the culture in which they existed.

P.S. This book is great for everyone’s library, so don’t forget to pick up a copy for yourself too!
