What a beautifully designed book! It's like an older posters campaign book, full of typography and illustrations about many women who made a difference through history. I'm sure there are many other women, but these women mentioned here are remarkable.
It's beautiful to see women fight for a bette...

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
This was really great. The book features several different sections [Make, Lead, Play, etc] and each section features three feminists whose primary work fits into that category. Each feminist featured has a portrai...

Some of these women are familiar to most of us (i.e.: Harriet Tubman, Virginia Woolf, or Marie Curie); but there are others that are less well known who have also pla...

Honestly this was a portfolio of art and historical information wrapped in vivid color. Dead feminists is an intersectional feminist look at history's women and their lives.
This history is then put in a modern framework involving one of today's civil rights issues.
Though biased, in these turbulen...

Gorgeous book, from the cover to the featured broadsides to the super thick high quality paper. This is the perfect read for this moment, to get fired up and inspired by bad-ass historical ladies of all types & from all time periods. There's only a few pages on each "dead feminist," but it's...
