Book mail from Thrift Books! Remember that copy of Founding Mothers (out of print) that had missing chapters? I tracked down another copy and now I can read what it has to say about Black and Native American women.

Also ordered Betsy Ross and a third book (on its way) to get free shipping 😊

Go on then. My response to the no make-up, no filter #BFCr2 #PhotoChallenge. Here I am, heavy jowls, bags under the eyes, wonky eyelids, grey hairs and all.

This was really good. I am super inspired by Melinda Gates. She is smart and strong and tough, and is using her privilege to speak for those whose voices aren‘t heard. I would like to see her run for office.

Disillusionment is just a start. Being disappointed is not same as being defeated.

This reminds me of Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls, for a younger audience. Which means I loved it! Inspirational stories about 13 women that shaped America. I loved the shout out to Elizabeth Warren in the dedication, all the women highlighted persisted despite the odds. An empowering book for growing minds.

LibrarianRyan ⭐️👍🤓 I liked this too. I have the around the world edition in my @24in48 pile 5d

I enjoyed this book because it really presented women‘s sexuality in an open and acceptable light in stark comparison to the prudish matronly types typically portrayed in the time the book was written. I appreciated how much easier we have it today but I can see clearly how far we‘ve yet to go. In this current administration and the resurfacing of open misogyny and women‘s reproductive rights being questioned, it as important as ever to read this.
