    This book does a great job of representing so many different types of people and experiences I love the illustration style but think the writing was stilted at points

    I can't believe I missed the one chance I had to meed Carol Rossetti on the 8th March in Lisbon All because I wasn't feeling well that day But reading the book makes me feel better about my own mental issues that prevented me from going so I guess that the point of the book is being fulfilled An excellent artist and a fellow intersectional feminist who believes in the same things I do

    Because of the lack of context that the broader project seemed to have online it's hard to rate this as a book The most confusing addition was a lioness furry in the Identity section which was only explained by a bit of googling The author is a self identified intersectional feminist whose work in this book mainly focused on choice feminism or the idea that if a woman chooses something for herself it's valid and fine regardless of societal pressures or impact Most of the women depicted were outwardly feminine; gender nonconformity was rare The singular instance of an intersex individual was in the context of someone's infant Hopefully each addition was based on a real woman; otherwise some of these came off as outright stereotypes

    I love the art and the messages My only complaint is there was randomly one where a woman was a lioness and I was like ??? Otherwise a lovely read Representation really is a key to social awareness and change
