GREAT GALS: Inspired Ideas for Living a Kick-Ass Life by cartoonist Summer Pierre is a creative and fun combination of journal prompts, journal pages, quick quizzes, inspirational quotes, black and white art, and mini-bios of dozens of amazing women, both past and present. You can use the book for journaling, doodling, exploring your creativity and your thoughts, but you can also use it for a quick dose of women’s wisdom and inspiration. The women profiled range from Cyndi Lauper to Lucille Ball to Emily Dickinson to Ani DiFranco to Julia Child making this book just plain awesome. As the press info notes, this is NOT “your typical inspirational women’s journal”—the goal is empowerment and honest, assertive self-exploration. It would make a fun holiday gift for any woman, young or old, who is interested in living a powerful life.
Luckily for you, I am able to offer TWO copies of Great Gals as a giveaway this month! To enter, just leave a comment telling me which woman in the world—past or present—you find the most inspirational. I will draw winners via random number generator next Wednesday at 9:00. For an extra entry, you can share this giveaway via Facebook and then post a separate comment letting me know you did so.
You can watch a trailer for Great Gals here and you can check in with the author/illustrator via her website.
There are so many women in the world worthy of the title, most inspirational, though one woman in history caught my attention, Anne Brontë.
She is one of the famed Bronte sisters who were Victorian authors.
Anne Bronte’s, Tenant of Wildfell Hall is so powerful to me! It speaks of feminism, passion and womanly strength, all topic considered taboo at the time.
Her novel inspires me with her courage and bravery!

Oh I don’t know. Rosa Parks, probably. Or Emmeline B. Wells, who edited a women’s magazine in Utah in the 19th century.
That book looks so awesome!
To be perfectly honest, I take inspiration from all the women around me in my daily life. Maybe I’m just lucky to know so many cool women, but it seems like the “little” things are what are so inspiring!
On a side note, I think it would be cool to win the journal and give it to my 11year old daughter as something we could do together. She enjoys filling out quizzes and is just starting her journaling journey.
I agree that right now it is the women I interact with as fellow mothers that inspire me. I am so lucky to have many amazing friends who support and share their love with me and my boys. I am amazed at how much energy and love they have to share.
I guess one of my most inspirational friends is Jenny who keeps the faith and continually serves others despite great challenges she faces.

Who inspires me? My grandmother. She was strong, independent, emotional and artistic. I love to think that there is a little bit of her in me, no matter where I go or what I do!
Thanks for sharing, this book looks fantastic!
