A Vogue "Book to Change Your Life in 2018" Pick
A Bustle "Best Nonfiction Book of January 2018 to Get You Ready for the Year"
From the creator of the Pussyhat Project comes a manifesto for every woman to create her own distinct and original path to joy, success, and impact.
On January 21, 2017, millions of protestors took part in the Women's March, and many of them created a "sea of pink" when they wore knitted pink "pussyhats" in record numbers. The pussyhat swiftly found its place on the cover of TIME and the New Yorker, and it ultimately came to symbolize resistance culture. Creator of the Pussyhat Project, Krista Suh, took an idea and built a worldwide movement and symbol in just two months. But like so many women, Krista spent years letting her fears stop her from learning to live by her own rules.
Now in DIY RULES FOR A WTF WORLD, Krista Suh shares the tools, tips, experiences, "rules," and knitting patterns she uses to get creative, get bold, and change the world. From learning how to use your own intuition to decide which rules are right for you to finding your inner-courage to speak up fearlessly; from finding what your passions are (this might surprise you!) to dealing with the squelchers out there, DIY RULES FOR THE WTF WORLD not only inspires you to demolish the patriarchy, but also enables you to create your own rules for living, and even a movement of your own, all with gusto, purpose, and joy.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings From the creator of The Pussyhat Project, Krista Suh and this is almost the guide book for women to become not an activist but more active in their lives in their own little worlds. I like that she gives advice that you can use on a personal level, that she isn't saying that everyone should create a movement, but instead should move in their own neighborhood! I love that in the intro of this book, the author suggests to the reader to read it as they wish. Cover to cover, in fits or spurts or just as they want. That was exactly how this book should be read. I read almost half in one sitting and came out with some homework and then read a few chapters every night for a week - it was perfect. There was so much in this book to digest that I liked sparsing it out over a week.
