Elizabeth Zimmermann struck the match that fuels Schoolhouse Press to this day. Now Elizabeth has been honored in a book of Dead Feminists: Historic Heroines in Living Color by Chandler O'Leary and Jessica Spring. It is a thrill to find Elizabeth in the great company of a diverse group of women, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Thea Foss, Fatima Al-Fihri, Gwendolyn Brooks, Harriet Tubman, Annie Oakley, Virginia Woolf, Shirley Chisholm, and many more. Dead Feminists is created in the tradition of collections of biographies and portraits of women and the broadside or broadsheet, the "great grand-mothers of the modern poster." The authors used women's quotes as a jumping off point to create posters and now book entries that include writing, photographs, and drawings related to the women and their artistry. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the books supports the Dead Feminists Fund, which the authors state "will support small grassroots nonprofits that align with the mission of empowering women and girls to become a force for good in their own communities." That's a cause we certainly support and hope you will too. The authors quote Eleanor Roosevelt who said, "It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness." Hardcover. 180 fabulous pages!
