Listen up, nasty women—I know everything feels horrible right now and you vascillate between wanting to burn down a building or curl up into a ball and cry but buck up. In times like these, it's important to remember that shit was always kind of shitty. In WWII, people couldn't eat sugar because of a little thing called RATIONING. Imagine being on a restrictive diet not because it's fashionable, but because the government was forcing you. I'm confident we now live in a society where there would be mass riots if someone tried to take away our soda pop, so progress, right?
Take inspiration from the past for use in the future via Rad American Women A to Z ($10, Amazon), which features 26 stories of amazing women who basically said, "fuck this shit" and did something amazing. It's the perfect gift for your daughter or for your ultra-conservative brother-in-law's kid. The future is female.
