Are you a feminist?
And what does being a feminist truly mean?
Find out by taking an inspiring tour through the alphabet, discovering what girls are really made of and just how much equality matters!
Every page of F is for Feminist creates an opportunity to have meaningful discussions with girls and boys about feminism, empowerment, and the wonderfulness of being, knowing, or raising a girl!
Kim Collins, Author of F is for Feminist
Kim Collins lives in beautiful Belmont, California, with her husband; teenage daughter; dog, Finn; and cats, Ollie and Posey. Her son is away at college and she misses him every day. Her life is filled with women (beginning with her mom) who love and support her endlessly and inspire her daily. She has been writing for as long as she can remember and is living her dream by publishing her first book.
Jacqueline Kraft, Graphic Designer
Mom of two awesome boys and one terrific dog, daughter, designer, executive photo shopper, and website builder. I am so inspired by Kim's book and the positive messages for girls and women – it is an honor to be a part of it all. Stay tuned for more great things from Be a BOLD Girl!
