The Little Book of Feminist Saints
By (author): Julia Pierpont Illustrated by: Manjit Thapp
9780399592744 Hardcover English General Trade HISTORY / Women Mar 06, 2018
$24.00 CAD
Active 5.01 x 7 x 0.73 in | 0.81 lb 208 pages 4-COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS THRUOUT Random House
A collection of inspiring, beautifully illustrated profiles of 100 groundbreaking women, from Marie Curie and Maya Angelou to lesser-known champions of progress.

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.

Story Locale: all around the world, all across time
