From the moment we discovered Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls by Francesca Cavallo and Elena Favilli, we knew it was bound to be a massive hit. A book full of diverse, inspiring women’s stories complete with great writing and stunning illustrations — what’s not to love?

Then came the smash sequel, Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls Vol. 2 which made it on our Editors’ Top 10 Picks of the Year list.

Well now that we’re all amply motivated and inspired, it’s time for all you rebel girls (and women) out to start doing more of your own incredible things and elevating your own incredible voices, with. I Am a Rebel Girl: A Journal to Start Revolutions, launching via Kickstarter today.

(Update: 1 hour after the campaign went live, it was already 40% funded. Whoa.)
