In the Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice from Over 100 Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs (Hardcover)
Reading In the Company of Women was surprisingly emotional for me, as I don’t think I’ve ever seen a book that celebrates such a diverse range of creative women—diverse in age, race, size, sexuality, occupation, and philosophy—with such vibrancy and style. Author Grace Bonney (of Design*Sponge fame) sets the tone in the introduction when she quotes Marian Wright Edelman: “You can’t be what you can’t see.” Visibility and women supporting and inspiring each other are so very important. Writers, chefs, artists, designers, musicians, and others who dream of running their own creative businesses will see themselves reflected in this beautiful and powerful book.— Stef
