History is often written from a man’s perspective. The stories of valor, sacrifice, inventions, and breakthroughs are all credited to men as if women didn’t exist back then. Ann Shen has done an excellent job of correcting that perception. Her book about badass women who changed the course of history is a timely reminder of the great contributions that women have made, making it an excellent gift for your girl friend. Girls, it’s time to change the narrative.

We can all agree that there are more than enough complicated recipes for brunches and desserts that require multiple trips to the supermarket.

In other words, when we are reaaaalllly hungover. Milton Crawford’s book has it all and should be required gifting between girl friends.
