A Woman Alone

Ladies globetrotting on their own in Turkey, China, Niger, Ireland, Russia, Belize… you name it, they’ve gone there.

"A delightfully testosterone-free collection… it would take no less than five hundred bearded, sensitive men to produce writing with this much insight." -Doug Lansky, author of Last Trout in Paris


Adventure Divas’ columnist Inga la Gringa’s manifesto reclaims the most reviled, and thus powerful, pejorative used to describe a woman’s package. A combo of girly health manual, women’s cultural reference guide, self-defense primer and an intensely personal revelation, Cunt has spawned a cult following among women empowered by this cunt-lingual feminist tract.

A Journey of One’s Own

Okay, this is the practical one. Cross-cultural encounters and self-discovery from a wide array of women are interwoven with detailed advice on matters such as how to deal with sexual harassment, stay healthy, be safe, and avoid theft. Well written and organized for easy accessibility, A Journey of One’s Own is both useful and inspiring.

Go Girl!

Spiced with information and advice, this guide for African-Americans and African-Canadians features tales from a wide array of authors, depicting travel as fun, as pure escape and relaxation; as spiritual quest and an opportunity for growth; and as mind-expanding, life-changing experience. Contributors include Maya Angelou, Jill Nelson, Alice Walker, Jamaica Kincaid, and others.

The Bust Guide to the New Girl Order

We’re sure that extolling the virtues of Bust here is preaching to the choir, but in case this magazine has flown under your feminist radar, please do yourself a favor and subscribe immediately at the Bust website. For those already in the know, this ‘Best of Bust’ collection is a must-have to bookend all those back issues you’ve been keeping around.
