2016 Global Ebook Gold Award Winner!


Ten years ago, Shannon Drury was a cranky feminist stay-at-home mom whose younger friends had to explain just what a “blog” was. Today she’s known in the blogsphere and IRL by the name of her award-winning website: The Radical Housewife.

This celebration of her blog-iversary includes her favorite posts, as well as essays from the Minnesota Women’s Press, HipMama, and other regional and national outlets, much of it no longer available anywhere else. Each piece has a new introduction, and in some cases, extra swear words!


Diary of a Rad Housewife brings back memories of when feminist mom blogging was about venting our political frustrations versus building an empire. The raw honesty and rants are sadly still relevant today. If you have ever wondered what happens when a feminist becomes a mom, this is the book for you. Spoiler alert: She gets even more radical.” –Veronica I. Arreola, founder of Viva La Feminista

“Feminists do it better, from blogging to parenthood! Diary of a Rad Housewife truly captures Shannon Drury’s honesty and wit. Highly recommended.” Sonya Huber, author of The Evolution of Hillary Clinton

“Shannon Drury is at her hilarious and poignant best in this collection of feminist essays. If you want to laugh or learn how to be a decent human being, read on. Herein lies a written mixtape of rad.” –Erin Matson, co-founder/co-director, Reproaction

“In the midst of full on motherhood after a successful career in the corporate world, my feminist soul was soothed by Shannon Drury’s words. I highly recommend this book to anyone wondering how on earth to balance all of this mothering we do, with the notion of being a ‘good’ feminist. She’ll let you know, in no uncertain terms, and with the right dose of humour, humility, and radicalness just what she thinks of all of it – and you will be grateful to know you are not alone!” -Natasha Chiam, Writer, TheStayatHomeFeminist.com
