We're still celebrating Women's History Month, so this announcement couldn't come at a more appropriate time. Author and activist Blair Imani has partnered with illustrator Monique Le, aka guacamomole, to bring us Modern HERstory: Stories of Women and Nonbinary People Rewriting History - a book featuring 70 women and nonbinary people who "have made history in the past and are making history in the present."

The book also features a foreword by Tegan & Sara: "we think Modern HERstory should be required reading for everyone" they write, emphasising the importance of giving visibility to the other side of centuries of history told and lived by men.

Modern HERstory hits the shelves on October 16th but is now up for pre-sale, so grab your copy here.
