Two Shrews exists to help girls and women be heard. With this, our inaugural book, we begin a tradition of producing quality, strong, friendly, funny, and helpful work: voices from underrepresented populations (girls, refugees, LGBT, the list goes on), guides for succeeding in male domains, feminist memoirs, and feminist fiction.
