Both a radical feminist history and a street art resource, this handbook combines short biographies with striking and usable stencil images of 30 female activists, anarchists, feminists, freedom fighters, and visionaries. From Harriet Tubman, Emma Goldman, and Angela Davis to Vandana Shiva, Sylvia Rivera, and Lucy Parsons, this collection offers a subversive portrait celebrating the military prowess and revolutionary drive of these women whose violent resolve often shatters the archetype of woman as nurturer. A sampling of quotes from key writings and speeches gives voice to each woman's ideologies, philosophies, struggles, and quiet humanity while the stencils offer further opportunities to commemorate these women and their actions through the reproduction of their likenesses.
"What you hold in your hands is a lethal weapon . . . a threat to the status quo and a dangerous wake-up call to every person who has ever dared to think for themselves . . . I believe the words and art in this book have the power to mobilize a revolution. Rise up and let's join them now!" --Wendy-O Matik, author, "Redefining Our Relationships: Guidelines for Responsible Open Relationships"
