About the Book
"Nona and Emma have done what I suspect many women, young and old, have always dreamed of doing: Hit the open road with nothing more than a partner in crime, a full tank of gas, a playlist of good music, a pad of paper, a camera, and an unyielding curiosity. Girldrive is part travel diary, part social document, part art exhibit, and, sadly, part eulogy. Not only do I highly recommend it, I have to admit that I’m insanely jealous I didn’t think of it first."

Girldrive is the first book on feminism I’ve seen based on the Web 2.0 model: short conversational stories, striking pictures, multi-racial. I wanted to click “share” every time I read another young woman’s reflection on gender and politics and how the two intertwine with race, class, and geographical experiences. It reminds me that feminism—like this country—has its strength in its diversity, in its many voices. Girldrive is truly a roadmap to feminism today and a must-read for anyone who wants to know where its future is headed."
—Daisy Hernández, Editor, ColorLines magazine
"Girldrive is a fascinating, fiery, dramatic whirlwind tour through modern-day women’s lives. It’s likely to make you excited, impassioned, and at times infuriated—and that’s a good thing. It lets its diversity of opinion speak to you rather than for you."
