More Than Enough -- Elaine Welteroth

Staff Pick

Many people know of  Elaine Welteroth’s work with Teen Vogue and of her lucky white boots, I was elated to find out she has written a memoir. Because she was the youngest editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue and the first African American director of beauty and health at Condé Nast, I thought I would fall into a book that was full of advice on how she became just that. But this book is the opposite. Instead of writing an advice book, she has been honest about her career and how hard it was being a FOD (first, only, different) in her industry and what happens when you make it to the top.

Women: Our Story -- DK

Staff Pick

Often with coffee table books, I’ll flip through them, think “hey this is cool”, and ultimately ponder “but do I really need to own this?” The answer for this book was easy: yes. Yes I do need to own this and get everyone I know to own it, too. Following a timeline from 600ce to present day, Women: Our Story spans the globe and touches on the other side of the past; from the worship of goddesses and female pharaohs, to the important roles of women in world wars and politics today. Artists, musicians, religious leaders, royalty, pioneers, and martyrs: this is a book of herstory.

Bringing Down the Colonel -- Patricia Miller

Staff Pick

The trial at the heart of Bringing Down the Colonel offers a glimpse into life during the Gilded Age and, more importantly, how women can bring about important social change. Madeleine Pollard, the woman at the center of the trial, truly puts the whole system on trial when she sues Colonel Breckinridge for “breach of promise,” demanding that he be held to the same standards as she is. Many women—before, alongside, and after Madeleine Pollard—also helped bring down this system, making this book about more than one woman’s quest for justice: it is inspiration for when the fight seems futile.
