Diary of a Rad Housewife: Ten Years of Tirades and True Tales by Shannon Drury

Ten years ago, Shannon Drury was a cranky feminist stay-at-home mom whose younger friends had to explain just what a "blog" was. Today she's known in the blogsphere and IRL by the name of her award-winning website: The Radical Housewife.

This celebration of her blog-iversary includes her favorite posts, as well as essays from the Minnesota Women's Press, HipMama, Skirt!, Literary Mama, and other regional and national outlets, much of it no longer available anywhere else. Each piece has a new introduction, and in some cases, extra swear words!

"Shannon Drury is at her hilarious and poignant best in this collection of feminist essays. If you want to laugh or learn how to be a decent human being, read on. Herein lies a written mixtape of rad." –Erin Matson, co-founder/co-director, Reproaction

"Diary of a Rad Housewife brings back memories of when feminist mom blogging was about venting our political frustrations versus building an empire. The raw honesty and rants are sadly still relevant today. If you have ever wondered what happens when a feminist becomes a mom, this is the book for you. Spoiler alert: She gets even more radical." –Veronica I. Arreola, founder of VivaLaFeminista

"Feminists do it better, from blogging to parenthood! Diary of a Rad Housewife truly captures Shannon Drury's honesty and wit. Highly recommended." –Sonya Huber, author of Hillary Clinton: The Essential Guide
