From Harriet Tubman, Emma Goldman, and Angela Davis to Vandana Shiva, Sylvia Rivera, and Lucy Parsons, this collection offers a subversive portrait celebrating the military prowess and revolutionary drive of these women whose violent resolve often shatters the archetype of woman as nurturer. A sampling of quotes from key writings and speeches gives voice to each woman’s ideologies, philosophies, struggles, and quiet humanity while the stencils offer further opportunities to commemorate these women and their actions through the reproduction of their likenesses....

    only issue is the use of the word "transgendered" rather than "transgender" in the profile of sylvia rivera. otherwise an excellent resource & quick read/reference that everyone should have on hand.

    Would keep on my shelf as a quick reference to powerful women throughout history. If it doesn't come with a second book, it should.

    Awesome concept (re: stencils) and a quick read. My favorite women profiled in this were Mother Jone,s Lolita Lebron, Hannie Shaft, Leila Khaled, Assata Shakur (of course), Sylvia Rivera, Olive Morris, and Phoolan Devi. I need a t-shirt with one of these women on it now! Fave quotes:"You can call it rape in your fancy language. Do you have any idea what it's like to live in a village in India? What you call rape, that kind of thing happens to poor women in the villages every day. It is assumed that the daughters of the poor are for the use of the rich." - Phoolan DeviRe: Mother Jones "She lived among the people with whom she worked and said that her home was "Well, wherever there is a fight"" (24)"A nation cannot be liberated whether internally or externally while its women are enchained." -Doria Shafik (Egypt)

    this book, originally a zine, is made up of concise descriptions of revolutionary women. Some are unionists, while others are eco-feminists, anti fascists, education activists, guerillas, authors, anarchists, socialists, and a mixture of many more.the point of the book is to show a global representation of, not perfect women but, women who fought and pioneered for universal rights. The book is an attempt to give female representation in a male dominated field: revoluntionaries. As said, short descriptions but the book also acts as a street level resource, coming with stencils of each women and encouraging readers to turn the stencils into tshirts or posters etc.

    It was on hoopla. Hadn't heard of a few of these. Some names to explore.

    Revolutionary Women is successful in its project of creating images of intriguing women in the fashion of Che Guevara’s iconic stencil while also providing brief biographies. This book has a refreshingly global representation of women from different countries and cultures, and with different revolutionary tactics and philosophies. The biographies include very minimal background information, but such brevity allows the courage of these thirty women to be highlighted regardless of the causes for which they fought.

    This book introduced me to a great deal of revolutionary women I had never heard of before. I feel so enlightened now having read it. There were alot of women in it I want to read more about and know about their lives more. It really woke me to the power of one woman in this world of so much over population. I think I'll come back to this book time and time again to remind myself just what one single person can achieve.

    Amazing collection of female revolutionaries from the 19-21st century along with easily reproducible stencils for all your revolutionary graffiti needs. Seriously this is a fantastic overview/who's-who that deserves your attention.

    A quick and very good read, only a few activists stood out to me, Assata Shakur, Malalai Joya, and Ani Pachen. Very inspiring book, I look forward to diving into the knowledge realm of feminism, womens issues, as well as issues steaming from oppression.
