- Southern Women: More than 100 Stories of Innovators, Artists and Icons by Garden & Gun, foreword by Allison Glock (2019) From the award-winning Southern lifestyle magazine Garden & Gun comes a rich collection of some of the South’s most notable women. For too long, the Southern woman has been synonymous with the Southern belle, a myth that gets nowhere close to describing the strong, richly diverse women who have thrived because of — and in some cases, in spite of — the South. This book shares the stories of more than 100 of the region’s brilliant women, groundbreakers who have by turns embraced the South’s proud traditions and overcome its equally pervasive barriers and challenges. These remarkable chefs, musicians, actors, writers, artists, entrepreneurs, designers, and public servants offer a dynamic portrait of who the Southern woman is now.
- Roses and Radicals: The Epic Story of How American Women Won the Right To Vote by Susan Zimet (2018) American women won the right to vote only one hundred years ago. When the controversial nineteenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution was finally ratified in 1920, it passed by just a one vote margin. The amendment only succeeded because a courageous group of women was relentless in their demand for the right to vote for more than seventy years. The leaders of the suffrage movement are heroes who were fearless in the face of ridicule, arrest, imprisonment, and even torture. The story of women's suffrage is epic, frustrating, and as complex as the women who fought for it. Illustrated with portraits, period cartoons, and other images.
