That's What She Said


Item # 9780062796769

Wise Words from Influential Women

An artist and activist committed to the empowerment of women and girls has created a gorgeous illustrated volume, blending watercolors and hand-lettered quotes from over 50 influential women whose words and actions are a passionate call to arms.

Distraught by the results of the 2016 election and the realization that the nation was not ready for its first female president, artist Kimothy Joy found herself poring over the biographies of brave women throughout history, those who persisted in the face of daunting circumstances, to learn from their experiences. Turning to art, Joy channeled her feelings to the canvas, bringing these strong women to life in bold watercolor portraits surrounded by inspirational hand-lettered quotes. 

Now, in this beautiful gift book, Joy has gathered her stunning illustrations and quotes and paired them with surprising, illuminating biographies of her subjects to inspire women of all ages, races, and backgrounds. That's What She Said honors a powerful and diverse group of over fifty women, from Maya Angelou, Gloria Steinem, and Virginia Woolf to Sojourner Truth, Malala Yousafzai, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Reclaiming the derogatory cultural barb “That's what she said”, this stunning book celebrates strong female leadership throughout history and empowers current and future generations to find their voices and inspire change in their communities.
