#1 The Feminist Financial Handbook

No Title

No Description

Sometimes the best way to stick it to the man is by doing well for yourself. There’s just one problem: it’s hard to do well for yourself when systemic oppression has placed innumerable hurdles between you and your aspirations. 

The Feminist Financial Handbook provides real motivation and resources for real women who may be struggling―not only those who have already accumulated wealth. In this book, author Brynne Conroy provides actionable tips for women in business to overcome these obstacles without dulling the visceral experience of the real-life struggles women face as they try to master their money management and their lives. 

Because women’s experiences don’t exist in a vacuum relegated to their gender, the handbook explores financial issues with anecdotes and perspectives of women of different races, sexual orientations and abilities. Whether you want to learn more about general financial planning principles, like saving or earning a higher income, or delve into issues that disproportionately affect women, like the wage gap or the long road to economic recovery after experiencing domestic violence, The Feminist Financial Handbook has stories and advice from women who have been there, worked through the struggle, and achieved personal success.

My Mom Has Two Jobs gives women a platform to talk with their kids about their work, and to help kids see how parents bring the same love, passion, and dedication to both their parenting jobs and their professional jobs. 

The book is beautifully illustrated to embrace diverse moms and kids of different races and ethnicities, and to show the wide range of important roles that women play.

#15 Backwards and in Heels by Alicia Malone

Women have been instrumental in the success of American cinema since its very beginning. One of the first people to ever pick up a motion picture camera was a woman-as was the first screenwriter to win two Academy Awards, the inventor of the boom microphone and the first person to be credited with the title Film Editor.

This is what film reporter Alicia Malone wants to change. Backwards and in Heels combines research and exclusive interviews with influential women and men working in Hollywood today, such as Geena Davis, J.J. Abrams, Ava DuVernay, Octavia Spencer, America Ferrera, Paul Feig and many more, as well as film professors, historians and experts.

No Title

No Description

The affirmations, quotes, and ideas in this book are a set of tools for you to use in your self-development. They are for “inner work.” And you know what they say about happiness-that it’s an “inside job,” which is 100% true. The suggestions in Plan Be! vary widely from spiritual aspirations to very simple, straightforward and practical ideas. 

Much has to do with adjusting your attitude. Depending on the day, it might be a slight adjustment or a major overhaul, but the more you practice daily affirmations, the fewer adjustments you’ll need. One day, you will realize you have mastered the art of “thinking happy” and are looking at the bright side of life every day. Incorporating this effort as a daily practice will build “mental muscle” and help you achieve the all-important optimistic way of thinking. 

These are habits that can easily be reinforced by practices such as journaling, creating your own affirmations, and talking to yourself in the positive. Like an engine driving you toward greater things, self belief brings you closer to your life’s purpose, your personal mission and will absolutely make you a happier camper.

#18 Women Who Launch: The Women Who Shattered Glass Ceilings

No Title

No Description

Dorothy Parker observed, “It’s a man’s world”; the lady entrepreneurs and game-changers profiled in Women Who Launch would beg to differ. Unlike many matrons of the 1950s, these kick-ass females left their DNA in the annals of time. Julia Ward-Howe showed what’s good for the goose is good for the gander when she created the Girl Scouts of America. 

Sara Joseph Hale, authoress of Mary had a Little Lamb, convinced Lincoln to launch a national day of thanks, while Anna Jarvis persuaded President Wilson to initiate a day in tribute of mothers. Estee Lauder revolutionized the cosmetics industry. The tradition of these Mothers of Invention continued when, compliments of knitter Krista Suh, the heads of millions were adorned with pink, pussy-cat ears in the largest women's march in history. 

Women Who Launch is filled with inspiring true stories of women activists, artists, entrepreneurs who launched some of the most famous companies, brands, and organizations today and changed the world. It is at once a collection of biographies and a testament of female empowerment. These women who launched prove, in the words of Rosie the Riveter, “We can do it!” Find motivation in your career and life with the amazing history of women entrepreneurship, activism, and leadership.

#20 Noona – Large Silk Scarf

No Title

No Description

Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe and the female form (ok, no need to be coy the design is what you think it is), this scarf is a beautiful and curvy thing of joy. The orchid-like shapes drape elegantly, forming abstract swathes of eye-popping colour. 

There is something delightful about wearing this powerful symbol which, though beautiful and universal, remains (for reasons beyond us) provocative and taboo. This is a luxurious scarf which can be worn as evening wear or to add a bit of oomph to daywear.
