I love this box. Before subscribing, I was so intrigued with Renee’s efforts to create a community for her subscribers. After confirming my subscription, I recieved an email from Renee introducing herself and emails to vote on the next months book and live chat times. I don’t use Facebook so I could join the group there, but she has made an effort to make sure that there is also an online community for those without social media!
As for the box I recieved, I loved that just as much. The book was one that I’ve read parts of before but I’m so excited to visit the rest of the information that it covers. There was samples of lotion bars and soap from female owned companies with coupons for their online store, a beautiful carved wooden magnet that I smile every time I see, and information on podcasts, businesses, and lessons that are all female owned and operated! I love that this box is clearly put together with love, thoughtfulness, and a focus on community rather than “filler” items.
I recieved my box during a stressful week and emailed Renee to tell her thank you for sending something that put such a smile on my face! Her response was heartfelt and encouraging. This box is absolutely worth it; not only will you get fascinating books, but you will make new friends and alliances as well!
I absolutely loved receiving my FBC box. The books are always interesting and the goodies that Renee finds that are amazing. I'd keep subscribing, but my to-read shelf has gotten out of control; I do have a couple of friends I keep talking it up to, so maybe they'll join in my stead! Thank you again for all you do!
I love this box so much. Anything that supports women-owned companies, makes an honest effort to be inclusive and intersectional, and gives me food for thought as well as other amazing women, or femme-identifying persons to interact with is right up my street. I really appreciate Renee's thoughtful approach to this box, as well as the way she runs the group. It isn't something that takes up a ton of my time, but it does let me check in periodically for reflection and conversation. It's the perfect way to interject some introspection into my life surrounding topics that are important to me. I rocked the earrings from this month's box out to dinner tonight. I felt awesome in my repurposed metal dangly chains, and felt really good about supporting several small businesses I believe in.
I am so in love with the Feminist Book Club subscription box! I subscribe to several different book boxes, and this is my favorite! What I love about this one is that the contents are always unique and support small women-owned businesses. I also love the community aspect and the opportunity to vote on each month’s book and the chance to chat with other members about what we’ve read.
This box is put together with love. You'll look forward to getting the box as well as the note from Renee. What I love the most about this box is the group. There's a diverse group of women that subscribe to this box and you'll appreciate the opinions and support that you get from them. This is the first box that I've subscribed to that has substance and really contributes to my overall well-being.
I've subscribed to a few boxes in the past, but this one is so much more than just some products in pretty packaging. I've canceled subscriptions to other boxes because I felt my money could go to more worthwhile causes and I really didn't need any more "stuff".
But Feminist Book Club? My hard earned cash is going to good causes AND I'm getting some kick ass "stuff"! I love that I am supporting small, femme-owned businesses. I'm expanding my library with books I probably never would have picked up on my own. The conversation in the private group is so honest, raw, and centering. And best of all? A portion of my subscription goes to a charitable organization that aligns with my feminist values every month.
I've said it before and I will say it again, and again, and again... this box is a game changer.
I LOVE this box and the amazing community that comes with it. Not only do we get to lift up amazing woman and femme owned businesses we have real conversations about the intersectionality of feminism, race, gender identity, class and so much more. I never thought being a part of this subscription would challenge me and keep me growing in the ways that it does. Sign up cause it’s the best thing you can do for your soul (and to crush the patriarchy) ❤️
I've had this box subscription for 3 months and it is consistently high quality — in terms of both the curated small business products and the book discussions. It's truly been such a good decision to set aside a little time and money each month to focus on educating ourselves and lifting one another up.
You NEED the Feminist Book Club subscription in your life! The books will broaden your definition of intersectional feminism. You’ll receive high quality thematic products that you’ll actually use- no tchotchkes gathering dust here! And the people who run this subscription service provide excellent customer service with the patience of saints. Through no fault of their own, my shipment hadn’t arrived when I expected it and I wrote a less than polite email. They responded professionally and my issue was immediately solved.
Like I said... I don’t care who you are, you NEED to subscribe to Feminist Book Club right now!
This box absolutely is worth it. It's empowering, personalized and every month when I get the email that my box has shipped I get so excited!!
So I just received my first box, & I’m all at once intrigued, curious, a bit confused & slightly disappointed. I love the concept of this box- a feminist book & 2-3 items from female/ feminist indie brands. I receive like 30 sub boxes a month, plus all the ones I’ve tried & cancelled, & I never cancel after the first month- it could be an off month for the box- to give the box the opp to get me hooked or keep me curious or interested. So the items this month are things I’d never buy for myself- the book, Austenistan, is one I’d never pick on my own (that doesn’t mean it’s not a good, interesting, entertaining or well- written book), the candle is really, really high quality & one of the strongest I’ve *EVER* tried (unfortunately, I HATE THE SCENT!!!— lemongrass & eucalyptus, but after an hour the scent of the small travel candle had filled about 2000 sq feet with its scent, & I’m sure aromatherapy wise I’d benefit, so maybe I’ll keep it instead of gifting), & a really cute & almost edgy pair of dangling chain fish hook earrings (unfortunately, I have stretched ears & wear 5/8” plugs or 6-4 gauge weighted earrings). So... I’m curious to see the next box... oh, the slight confusion comes from checking out the photos, they all look like there are several more products than the 2-3 promised in the box description, but maybe I’m wrong? Oh,...
Hi Shannon! We are so grateful for your review and helpful feedback, especially as we're still new and working out some kinks. I wanted to address some of the things you mentioned in your review for clarification purposes. I'm glad you appreciated the products even though the candle's scent wasn't to your liking and the earrings weren't ideal for you. Feminist Book Club is so much more than a subscription box, though. It's less about the products and more about the connections to one another through our feminist values, building on tried-and-true practices used throughout feminist history and translating them to the modern, online world. We cultivate our community through our discussion group, monthly live chats, and other online events. I noticed you're not a...
Feminist Book Club & the monthly box is my favorite subscription! The group of women are real and wonderful, we have great discussions about each month's book and the feminist book club box is so creative and fun! Love being part of this community - cannot recommend this enough!
One of my favorite women boxes and the owner is awesome and so down to earth.
