Behind Every Great Woman is a Great Cat


- +
Uplifting stories of remarkable women and their cats combine with bestselling illustrator Lulu Mayo's fabulously quirky art to create an irresistible gift for cat lovers and their favorite felines.
What do nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale, modernist artist Georgia O’Keefe, and the revolutionary Rosa Luxemburg have in common? They all dared to change the world—and they all cherished their cats!
Behind Every Great Woman Is a Great Cat pairs uplifting stories of more than 30 kitty-loving women—artists, pioneers, writers, and humanitarians, including Colette, Julia Child, Betty White, Taylor Swift, and Gigi Hadid—with delightful pictures by bestselling illustrator Lulu Mayo. The book celebrates the fabulous feline as muse, companion, colleague, and emotional support even as it explodes the myth of the "cat lady." Unexpected cat facts, trivia on world-record cats, advice on conversing with your cat, and more, round out this inspiring, empowering volume.
