Women in Science Puzzle
This 500-piece jigsaw puzzle based on Rachel Ignotofsky’s New York Times bestselling Women in Science is perfect for middle grade readers or adults who want to brush up on women’s history. The puzzle is peppered with biographical facts about each of the 13 women whose portraits come together as the puzzle is assembled. Potter’s puzzles come with a handy full-color reference poster, and this one can be hung in any science-lover’s room for years to come.
Women in Sports
If you’ve already devoured Women in Science (a “wittily illustrated and accessible volume,” according to the Wall Street Journal), branch out a little and read about the female powerhouses in the sports arena. Women in Sports is the second in Rachel Ignotofsky’s bestselling series, profiling 50 notable athletes from the 1800s to today. Read about Bonnie Blair, Billie Jean King, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Serena Williams, Nadia Comăneci, and many more with this enlightening educational gift.
Renegade Women in Film and TV
Touted by Paste Magazine as a “must-read,” this charmingly illustrated tribute looks at 50 female producers, directors, writers, and performers who broke, and continue to break the all-too-common glass ceilings in film and television. Elizabeth Weitzman, author and former movie critic, delivers fun, history-rich, and, when warranted, outrage in the intriguing interviews that accompany the stunning drawings of these trailblazing, showrunning women like Lucille Ball, Oprah Winfrey, Nora Ephron, and Amy Poehler. Pick it up for yourself to learn about the changing industry at this key point in its history, or give it to a friend, daughter, sister, mother, movie buff, or co-worker who loves celebrating and reading about female empowerment.
Captain Marvel Journal: Fly Higher!
Inspired by Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel, girls of all ages can pilot their own path to bravery with this guided empowerment journal. Whether they’re drawing a picture of themselves, writing about a time they had to fight for what they believe in, making a list of their achievements, or dreaming up the best superhero name, the daily prompts and questions encourage positivity and kindness and inspire creativity. It’s the perfect gift for the strong girls and tweens who can’t wait to show off their Super Girl swag and document their experiences at school, summer camp, or their secret bedroom lair.
Rad American Women A-Z Postcards
Celebrate the radical heroines who shaped America’s history with Rad American Women A-Z Postcards, a bound book of 26 postcards to send to friends and family, hang on your wall, or use to spruce up a gift. The portraits—originally from the New York Times bestselling book Rad American Women A-Z—capture some of herstory’s most powerful influencers, from Angela Davis to Zora Neale-Hurston.
Popular musicians Tegan and Sara call this book “required reading for everyone,” so what are you waiting for? Activist and journalist Blair Imani has created a compendium of boundary-breaking female and nonbinary trailblazers who have changed—and are still changing!—the world as we know it. Modern HERstory profiles and celebrates seventy champions of progressive, radical social change in this bold, colorful, illustrated book for all ages. All of these icons come from communities that are traditionally overlooked and under-celebrated: not just women, but people of color, queer people, trans people, disabled people, young people, and people of faith.
The Nasty Woman Game
Now that you have learned all about Modern HERstory, you can celebrate the feminist trailblazers you’ve read about with this fun and interactive card game! Gameplay is similar to Cards Against Humanity—players complete a voicey, political fill-in-the-blank with an answer that appeals to the nastiest of women. As you play, you get to compile a girl squad of your own, collecting nasty woman cards with portraits of women like Beyoncé, the Notorious RBG, Audre Lorde, Gloria Steinem, Janet Mock, and more. Learn about common feminist terms like catcalling, The Bechdel Test, intersectionality, and toxic masculinity. Avoid the “You’re Trumped!” card, or you’ll lose. The last nasty woman standing wins.
March is Women’s History Month, so it’s the perfect time to honor the incredible women who have built the platform upon which women stand today. Dive into illustrated, female-centric history books like Women in Sports or Renegade Women in Film and TV or share the stories of trailblazers with the little ones in your life, using illustrated postcards or a guided superhero journal. Enter Potter Gift’s sweepstakes celebrating International Women’s Day, too, to be sure you’re stocked with the best educational gifts to make this women’s history month your most informed yet.
