What is Feminist Scrapbooking?
Feminist scrapbooking is about telling the stories of our lives and of our generation.
We document our lives because we are the best humans to do the job.
We take photographs, words, and bits of our lives and we turn them into beautiful creative representations of our experiences here on Earth.
Feminist scrapbooking celebrates the diversity of women. We learn so much more about ourselves not only when we tell our stories, but when we watch AND LISTEN to other women tell their stories.
