Is there anyone who doesn’t love the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls? series? As I’m sure you know, we are huge fans of the books, so I was keen to get my hands on the newly released box of 50 postcards (Particular Books, RRP £14.99), depicting extraordinary women. Divided into five categories (Champions, Creators, Leaders, Warriors and Pioneers), they are all fabulous, featuring the portraits from the book on the front and some biographical information and a condensed story on the back, with plenty of room to write. I was asked to choose the woman I found most inspiring and, although there was some seriously stiff competition from the likes of mathematician Ada Lovelace, activist Malala Yousafzai and artist Frida Kahlo, it just had to be American writer, poet and activist Maya Angelou (I’m sure Claire would agree with me on this). Her memoir about her troubled early life, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, is one of my most returned to books and I read her poem Life Doesn’t Frighten Me at Kitty’s naming day. Her belief in the power of language and love of the spoken word will always stay with me – and one look at Kitty’s bookshelf reinforces her influence on our family (see pic)! I’ll be using the postcards to send to friends to remind them how fabulous they are. Who would you choose?
