We Are Women: A Giveaway!

Introducing: WE ARE WOMEN: CELEBRATING OUR WIT AND GRIT. This spunky, upbeat, and moving collection of photographs and quotations was created by June Cotner and Barb Mayer. In this post, Barb tells us more:

The idea for WE ARE WOMEN originated with June, who has always loved browsing through vintage greeting cards. Curious about what kind of lives these women led, she decided to develop a book that would feature vintage photos of women paired with inspiring as well as humorous quotes. Our goal was to create a book that would appeal to both younger and older women, one that would embody the best of the human spirit. We wanted to show how these positive characteristics have been handed down through generations of women.

WE ARE WOMEN is a celebration of womanhood. It shows that our ancestors were a far cry from the staid and serious portrait photos we often see in antique shops and history books. They were daring, innovative, and fun-loving. They were pilots, motorcycle riders, skiers, engineers, and political activists. Many were pioneers who paved the way for future generations of women to pursue careers that were traditionally dominated by men.

We hope that our book will inspire and uplift women, encouraging them to live their lives to the fullest.

  1. Congrats ladies! I as well love old pictures / cards and in fact have one taped to my fridge as inspiration. Love to win this book!

  2. I would love to know what those women in the seemingly college/academic lecture hall (post’s featured photo) were looking at and/or responding to!! Do the books’ authors know?

      • So glad that there are links to the photo credits! This incredible photo did look like it was captured in the 1920’s, but also looked like it could have been from a great Hollywood film of that era, too! Sex Ed classes in the 1920’s? Whew! So very interesting!!

  3. The creativity in pairing the photos (that according to one Amazon review span quite a time period) with the quotations is one of the things that makes this book unique and special! It looks like it would be very enjoyable to read!
