    Here's The Perfect Book For The Young Feminist In Your Life

    We all have a little Gutsy Girl in us.

    A new book for young women titled The Gutsy Girl offers up a very important lesson: Girls can ~obviously~ kick as much ass and be just as adventurous as boys can be.

    The book is written by Caroline Paul, a self-proclaimed "gutsy girl" herself who was one of the first female firefighters in San Francisco, and is illustrated by Wendy MacNaughton.

    MacNaughton has illustrated a number of books, including Lost Cat and Meanwhile in San Francisco: The City in Its Own Words.

    In addition to short history lessons and encouraging anecdotes about the author's experiences, The Gutsy Girl also includes lots of fun drawings and designs.
