The Little Book of Feminist SaintsBook - 2018
"New York Times bestselling writer Julia Pierpont and up-and-coming artist Manjit Thapp tell vibrant, inspiring, and surprising stories of strength and progress by pairing short, lyrical biographies of secular 'saints' with stunning full-color portraits. Some may be obvious: Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) wrote the first algorithm for a machine and is considered the first computer programmer. Some less so: Kanno Sugako (1881-1911) was an anarcho-feminist Japanese journalist who fought against gender oppression. Featuring a woman from 8th century BC and women fighting for social justice in 2017, women who lived in midtown Manhattan and a woman who lives in rural Uganda, this will be a book to offer as a gift to the girls and women in your life, but also one you'll want for yourself— because it's beautiful, because it's smart and edifying, and because it's a companion of sorts, a daily inspiration and delight." -- Provided by publisher.
