Care. Love. Be outraged. Be devastated. Just don’t give up. The world needs good humans today - Ellen Degeneres.
That quote says it all. This book is full of inspirational women and quotes for all ages. This is a book for young woman to show them that they can be anything they want to be. There are stories from people you know and some who you may not have heard of but every story is inspiring and this book would make a lovely gift for the young girls in your family.

I absolutely adored this book, only wish I had a physical version of it. That's how much I loved it.

It's a gorgeous book, and the quotes were not only empowering, but also up-beat and encouraging. I had a great time reading it, and recommended it widely. However, I couldn't find the book on Goodreads, or platforms where the book was sold. So many of my friends were interested in purchasing it on pre-order, but it wasn't clear WHERE.

'Grit & Grace' is a book of quotes by women. Simple. 85% of quotations shared daily are by men. Alicia Williamson and Pauline Weger have done the research and have created a brilliant and stylish book filled with 90 remarkable women and girls and clever/inspiring/brave things that they have said. I have already screen shot and instagrammed “Don’t shoot for the stars, we already know what’s there. Shoot for the space in between because that’s where the real mystery lies” Vera Rubin, Astronomer

Grit & Grace is a great gift to celebrate events in your female friend's life. It contains short biographies on a variety of accomplished women as well as quotes to inspire. 
For me personally, I flipped through it reading some biographies and mostly focusing on the quotes. I found some of their identifying creation for these women a little out there and wasn't even sure what most of them meant. I did like the variety of women that were included and was so happy top see Tulsi Gabbard included!
Cute and a pick me up for a female friend, Grit & Grace is a reminder that women are pretty awesome.
