Praise for The Little Book of Feminist Saints

  • An enticing collection of biographical portraits of extraordinary women ... Pierpont's pithy write-ups are accompanied by Thapp's funky, wonderfully expressive color illustrations, making for an engaging picture-book experience for adults ... Bold and sassy, Pierpont and Thapp's "little" collection of secular "saints" stands tall: required reading for any seeking to broaden their historical knowledge. - Kirkus

  • As 2018 marks the hundredth anniversary of women's suffrage, there is some really great feminist non-fiction publishing this year like The Little Book Of Feminist Saints. - Red Online
