No One Wants to Fight Patriarchy Alone, Make Friends

Girls Are Not Chicks Coloring Book

I was cleaning out my office today and pulled out a copy of my favorite coloring book (that’s right, I have a favorite coloring book) Jacinta Bunnell and Julie Novak’s Girls are not Chicks.

This is a must-have for your bookshelf.

Each adorable picture is accompanied by an awesome saying like, “Not all girls who like makeup grow up to be dainty young ladies” and “Underneath all of the fancy and fashionable clothing, Sophia found an enthusiastic love of her own body.”

Last year I stumbled upon this little gem just in time for graduation. I emailed Jacinta via Etsy, and she expedited five books for me to give as gifts to my fellow gender studies graduates. Inside the package of coloring books was a hand-written note of congratulations to my friends and me. Jacinta’s kindness and talent is a breath of fresh air.

If you need to give a gift to your favorite feminist ally, or even just your favorite five-year-old, this is the book. Social justice work is exhausting, but it feels better when you do it with friends:
