All About Love: New Visions was the book that made an epic comeback for tragic reasons this year. Read it.


Wendy Davis

The infamous shoe that destroyed the patriarchy on a fateful Texas night: the Mizuno Wave Runner.


Coretta Scott King

She loved books and you need to read about her before any more time gets away from you in your lifetime of wasted chances to be Coretta’s biggest fangirl. So it works out.


Desert Rose: The Life and Legacy of Coretta Scott King // My Life with Martin Luther King, Jr. // Coretta Scott // The Coretta Scott King Awards, 1970 – 2009

Alanis Morissette

None of these are really that ironic, which really sucks.


Brown Leather Alanis Morissette Bracelet //A.M. Gold Pick Necklace // Jagged Little Pill (duh.)

Betty White

The entire series of The Golden Girls is still not enough of The Golden Girls.


Sheryl Crow

It’s an addiction.

    • Also, it’s only when I venture out to other websites and see a load of men and articles and shit about/for them that I remember how amazing Autostraddle is. Thanks for all the girl on girl stuff; never change!

    • There are tons of other Frida Kahlo socks, never you fear! I got some Frida ankle socks for Christmas and they are perfect for any occasion that requires a creative and cultivated badass attitude!

    • For those of you who love the idea of Frida Kahlo socks (I mean who wouldn’t) I can also recommend these: I have the purple ones and they’re great!

  1. Golden Girls entire series is the perfect gift no matter what the occasion! The fact that it comes in box that looks like Sofia’s purse is just the icing on the cake.

  2. “Chances are the Madonna enthusiast in your life already illegally pirated her entire discography.”

    I have no idea what you’re talking about.

  3. I was trying and failing to come up with a Christmas list that was more than just grocery store gift cards and amazon wasnt helpful so I came here and I was–unsurprisingly–not disappointed.

    I want that Frida figurine for an altar of my personal queer saints.

  4. Omg the Frida Kahlo tank top!!! Rock the unibrow all day every day!

    Also that Bettie Page shower curtain is amazing.

  5. I want those Frida socks!

    Every time I see a picture of Amelia Earheart I think of that line in a Family Guy Song, “Amelia Earheart flew a lot of airplanes, expect for that time when she didn’t come back”.

  6. I love the Coquette! Also, I did not realize how much I need Frida Kahlo socks in my life until this very moment.

  7. What about Rose of Versilles, both box sets or Utena. Both are great series with leading ladies who say “SCREW GENDER ROLES!” and lead awesome lives!

  8. I had the book “Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride” when I was younger and I’m pretty sure that inspired multiple school projects about these two ladies…Amelia Earhart is a badass.

  9. ahh i would desperately love for someone to shut the fuck up and buy me an Eileen Myles book already.
