Bonnie Burton, author, Star Wars aficionado, Jessica Fletcher fan and longtime friend of Laughing Squid, has published her newest book Crafting with Feminism: 25 Girl-Powered Projects to Smash the Patriarchy, a wonderfully quirky and fun array of amusing female-positive projects that are explained throughout with an amazing sense of humor. Additionally actress Felicia Day wrote the foreword. The book is currently available for pre-order and will be released on October 18, 2016
This is what a feminist crafter looks like! Wear your ideology on your sleeve by creating feminist merit badges (like “started an all-girl band” or “rocked roller derby”). Prove that the political is personal with DIY power panties (“No means no”). Craft great feminist hero finger puppets (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Frida Kahlo) or googly-eyed tampon buddies. Fun sidebars provide background on (s)heroes of the feminist movement.
