Emily McDowell is a writer, illustrator and a speaker. She is a cancer survivor. This experience gave her the perspective and the encouragement to put her thoughts into writing and help people communicate with others when they truly don't know what to say.
And sometimes the thing we want to say is that our women friends are awesome and also there's a lot of fucking bullshit in the world, so let's fight and get through it together.
Start your day right with these #IammeandIdontgiveafuck ceramic mugs. These should perk you up and have your female juices flowing. Get your snarky ass on and let these spunky mugs do the talking!
Those women who raised you deserve to be appreciated - they are a big part of the person you are now and they still play a big role in your life. They have invested so much and are the very first ones who put up with your snarkiness and feistiness and told you it's okay to express yourself. So give them these cards that tell them just that and make their day more special.
Whether it be for a snarky friend's birthday, or to invite your sassy friends to a party, or just for any ordinary day - these cards are perfect. Lift your friend's dampened spirits high with this Broken Objects Foil Card and let her know her flaws are what makes her uniquely wonderful. Don't know how to tell someone you're thinking of them? Let the Awkward Thinking of You Card speak for the wallflower in you! Whatever it may be, speak up and let your thoughts be heard!
Smash the patriarchy with these canvas tote bags that totally show off your ideals and beliefs through their snarky designs. Yes, patriarchy isn't going to fight itself - so you have to stand up and go on a head-on collision against this rotten system! Grab one of these bags and flaunt 'em like you mean 'em!
Why do we have magnets on our fridge? Well, our fridge magnets and pictures tell the story of our lives and we are reminded of these great stories every time we are in front of the refrigerator. Or they're just kind of funny and hold stuff onto the fridge so it doesn't fall down.
Let these fridge magnets reassure you and lift you (or at least small slips of paper you want to keep in plain view) up each and every fucking day. Make them your silent inspiration to never let your dreams and passion fade! Make them your constant reminders that you are a badass woman and you were born to rule the world!
