The Little Book of Feminist Saints Reviews
Cute book that didn’t so much as tell a biography of these women but defined their spirits and I really liked it. I learned a lot from this book and I think I might end up giving this a gifts.
Oh boy. I loved this. This book is set up as a Catholic saint of the day book with feast days and beautiful art. It's a diverse selection of feminist icons. There were several times i had to go look up someone because i had never heard of them before. This is perfect for an adult or your little feminist at home.
If I could give this book a million stars, I would. I cannot say enough good things about this book. This book is like chicken soup and some sort of massive energy drink for my inner beast mode feminine soul.
Celebrating women such as Ada Lovelace, Wilma Mankiller, Sojourner Truth, Sally Ride, Malala Yousafzai, and so much more, and modeled after the "Saint of the Day" books, Pierpont looks at a diverse cross section of women throughout history.

Un libro acerca del Feminismo.
Lovely little gem of a book highlighting the lives of fascinating women as saints. Each Saint is commemorated with her own feast day and beautiful vibrant icon like art.

I loved the concept of Matron Saints. I decided to post a list of my favorite ones above my desk in case I wanted to dedicate a blog post to a Matron Saint. There were unexpected nuggets in some of the one page profiles. My only complaint is that I wish Pierpont gave us source notes.
My favorite Matron Saint title was the Matron Saint of Going Off Script which Pierpont bestowed on Marlene Dietrich.
One of my favorite stories was the one about Shirley Chisholm visiting George Wallace in the hospita ...more
Read in prepub. Due out March 2018. I loved this book so much. I want to put this into the hands of every woman and girl I meet. It was inspirational, even for women's studies loving, hardcore feminist like myself. While the "usual subjects" are included, I was introduced to lesser known icons. It is also just a beautiful physical object. I read it digitally, but immediately placed my order for the book.
