Up From the Pedestal: Landmark Writings in the American Woman’s Struggle for Equality
Submitter: Long before your blog existed, I saved this book jacket from a discarded book. Though this book discusses gains in women’s rights, the cover art features a groom in a striped skirt (look!), a mother, a woman cooking, and oddly a woman contemplating flowers while reading a book. Between the colors featured and the confusing jacket design, this cover cracks me up every time I see it.
Holly: I get that the women’s movement is a historical topic, but could we get some more interesting-looking books on our shelves? On the plus side for this one, it looks like maybe it includes primary source material from the “original” feminist writers, which makes it a little more useful than it would be otherwise.
