Why settle for mere mortal excellence when you could be living like a goddess? You Goddess! takes us on a colourful tour of ancient deities and legends through the prism of female power, sharing the mythical stories of 25 goddesses from every corner of the globe. From famous divas like Athena to less familiar heroines such as the Japanese dawn goddess Uzume, the Mayan 'jaguar goddess of midwifery' Ixchel and the African mermaid spirit Mami Wata, E. Foley and B. Coates show how the tales of these deities have been depicted by men over the centuries, revealing the ancient roots of toxic female stereotypes (the damsel in distress, the selfless mother, the tempting harlot). Beautifully illustrated and fizzing with their signature feminist spirit, they reclaim these inspirational women for a new generation - and bring empowering mythical magnificence and celestial chutzpah into our daily lives.

The Comparison Trap

Too often, women hold each other back, bad mouthing and making unflattering comparisons. Social media give extra opportunities for negative comment. Are we trapped in our own battles, or entertained by the wars of other women, to the detriment of our own freedom and well-being? What would happen, asks Helen Roberts, if women ceased to compete and compare? What if we settled our conflicts and resolved instead to champion one another? To celebrate each other’s victories? Helen explores the complexities of female relationships in workplaces, families and friendship circles, using contemporary, historical, personal and biblical examples. She investigates Scripture to see how, through the work of the Holy Spirit, we can cease the all-too-frequent “she wars”. She helps us recognise our own destructive tendencies and establish healthy habits which will enable women and their relationships to thrive. This will help us live more confidently as the daughters the Father intends us to be, free from envy or comparison.

“Fun, cheeky” (Booklist), and a visual delight, What Would Cleopatra Do? shares the wisdom and advice passed down from Cleopatra, Queen Victoria, Dorothy Parker, and forty-seven other heroines from past eras on how to handle common problems women have encountered throughout history and still face today. What Would Cleopatra Do? tackles issues by reminding us of inspiring feminists from the past, telling their stories with warmth, humor, and verve. From sticking up for yourself, improving body image, deciding whether to have children, finding a mentor, getting dumped, feeling like an imposter, being unattractive, and dealing with gossip, we can learn a lot by reading motivational stories of heroic women who, living in much tougher times through history, took control of their own destinies and made life work for them. Here are Cleopatra’s thoughts on sibling rivalry, Mae West on positive body image, Frida Kahlo on finding your style, Catherine the Great on dealing with gossip, Agatha Christie on getting dumped, Hedy Lamarr on being underestimated—to list only a few—as well as others who address dilemmas including career-planning, female friendship, loneliness, financial management, and political engagement. Featuring whimsical illustrations by L.A.-based artist Bijou Karman, What Would Cleopatra Do? is a distinctive, witty, and gift-worthy tribute to history’s outstanding women.

As featured in Elle magazine's Best Feminist Gift Books 'A joyous and energetic celebration of girlhood, friendship and pop culture. If you have ever sung into the lid of a can of Impulse body spray, you need to read this.' Daisy Buchanan The words 'girl power' conjure vivid memories of short skirts and platform boots. But it wasn't just about the look, it was about feminism. The Spice Girls gave a generation their first glimpse of the power of friendship, of staying true to yourself, of sheer bloody-mindedness. And the girl power generation went on to kick-start a new conversation around gender equality. We may have grown up asking What Would the Spice Girls Do?, but their particular brand of feminism is as relevant today as it was twenty years ago – we still need that fun and fearlessness, we still need accessible and all-embracing equality... we still need a zig-a-zig-ah. ‘Lauren Bravo is one of my very favourite writers.’ Dolly Alderton ‘The Spice Girls’ arrival on the pop scene marked the gateway to a modern form of feminism, all dressed up as a riotously good time.’ Stylist As featured on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 5Live and BBC Radio Sussex.

This story is a blend of the available historical facts concerning the famed Iceni Queen, with the mythology in Britain at the beginning of the first millennium. It begins four years before the Claudian invasion of Britain, when Boudicca was probably in her early teens, and follows her life through her early training, her marriage to King Prasutagus with whom she has two daughters, and her increasing power with Iceni tribe. The story ends with her death in 61 AD. In the years after the invasion, the victorious Romans become greedy and when the Prasutagus dies, Boudicca is scourged. In the resulting revolt, she leads an army that slaughters all who side with the Romans. In her rampage she very nearly defeats the Roman army, but when victory escapes her, she commits suicide. While allegory, fantasy and mysticism are employed, the story remains true to the mores, customs and beliefs of the Celts, as nearly as knowledge permits. Many of the characters, such as Prasutagus, Caratacus, Togodumnus, Cunobelinos, The Roman leaders and the Roman procurator are documented historical figures who were involved in the four hundred year reign of the Romans.
