4 Books that Exude Girl Power

These books are filled with girl power.

Every woman and girl needs to have an arsenal of books to turn to when the world gets them down. So, we’ve rounded up the following books – all of them are oozing with girl power.

1. “Yes Please” by Amy Poehler

This book was recommended to me by a wise, wonderful woman – my mom! Mama Stutzer read this book in the fall of 2014 in about two weeks. The book is filled with amazing stories from Poehler’s life, and serves a heaping serving of inspirational advice.

2. “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” by Caitlin Doughty

This book definitely isn’t a conventional girl power book, but it’s inspirational all the same. This book tells the tale of how Doughty got into the death business. It’s an incredibly interesting story and full of a lot of emotion and respect for the human condition (aka, life and death). Also: It was one of my favorite reads of 2014.

3. “Rad American Women A-Z” by Katie Schatz, illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl

“Rad American Women” is a great book for anyone who is interested in women’s history. It’s filled with the histories of various influential women. While it’s described as a children’s book, I think I know more than a few grown women (including myself) who would want to add this book to their bookshelf.

4. “Girl Sex 101” by Allison Moon, illustrated by KD Diamond

The creators of this book wrote it for “ladies and lady-lovers of all genders and identities.” This sex-positive book is consent focused and filled with great stories that are LGBTQ-friendly. The book will officially launch on April 7.
