This is what a feminist crafter looks like! Wear your ideology on your sleeve by creating feminist merit badges (like started an all-girl band or rocked roller derby). Prove that the political is personal with DIY power panties (No means no). Craft great feminist hero finger puppets (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Frida Kahlo) or googly-eyed tampon buddies. Fun sidebars provide background on (s)heroes of the feminist movement.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"What I like most about [Crafting with Feminism] is its throwback feel. Eff the too-perfect Pinterest aesthetic; this tome reminds me of the pre-Etsy era, when 'zines were the norm and crafts were kind of crude (with an endearing, knowing touch of Regretsy as well--ahem, vagina tree ornaments). Viva la DIY revolucion!"--Bust

"In this sassy craft book, pop-culture expert, crafter, writer, and feminist Burton offers more than two dozen DIY projects inspired by real and fictional feminists.... Perfection la Martha Stewart is not the goal here. Approaching loaded issues with a light heart and sense of humor is the aim."--Booklist

"The projects in Crafting with Feminism ARE playful and funny, ironic and extroverted, but they also form a very solid, engaged education in modern feminism, body acceptance and body sovereignty....In many ways, Crafting with Feminism acts like a primer for a youthful feminist awakening for the twenty somethings."--Needle & Spindle

"I don't have time to tell you how much I love this book because I'm too busy crafting all my tampons into my imaginary friends. Also, I'm now out of tampons. Things are gonna get real weird if I forget to buy more." --Jenny Lawson, author of Furiously Happy

"Wait...did you say huggable uterus body pillow?...because you had me at vagina tree ornaments. Just as 'feminist' is a badge of honor in modern times so is being a maker. Bonnie has married the DIY spirit with a celebration of women. I know what I am doing this weekend."--Kari Byron, "MythBusters" co-host

"This book invites you to join a community of inspired, creative people who care about the world and want to make a difference one finger puppet at a time.

"The change-the-world spirit of feminism combines with the DIY attitude of craft in this irreverent and inspiring book of projects with a saucy, sarcastic bent."--Foreword Reviews
