A thread to share female-owned businesses, female-authored books, female artists… you get the drift. Let’s talk about positive representations of women.
I’ve made a Discord book club, if anyone would like to join: https://discord.gg/CMBF9Hj
Only female authors discussed. Once we reach 10 members the first book will be voted on! (Server in English, based in Western Europe.)
Really like this idea anon, shame the board is so slow.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is quite good. Written by a woman about a woman whose cancer was sampled for the purposes of biomedical research. She is 'immortal' in the sense that her DNA has lived on unabated for decades past her death. It might not sound like a fun read but it is actually quite interesting.

I also highly recommend anything by Mary Roach, but 'Boink: The Curious Coupling of Sex and Science' is probably her most well known one.
She wrote another book 'Stiff' about human cadavers that is also really interesting. Both books are much funnier than you would expect them to be.
I did toy with the idea of putting it in /ot but got REEed at last time for putting stuff in the wrong place lol.
Thank you for the book suggestion! >>76911

This style is interesting anon!
is my favourite book from childhood. Has an inspiring female lead and written by a woman. I was never that into art, but I’m feeling motivated to find some new stuff. Any suggestions, anons?
