Crafting with Feminism contains 25 Girl-Powered Projects to Smash the Patriarchy. I’m not sure I’ll actually ever make any of these projects, but I was interested in seeing what all was included in the projects. Some of them included badges of honors, hero puppets of great feminist heroes and even tampon buddies. (Cmon, you had to know something including tampons was going to end up in this book!) A lot of the projects really made me laugh and they would be a lot of fun to make with your other feminist buddies on a boring weekend.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
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.
