NSS 2017: Lady Power

If 2016 was the year of the boss lady, then 2017 was definitely the year of lady power at the National Stationery Show! Several booths had entire collections dedicated to female empowerment, from celebrating female relationships to historical perspectives on women’s rights and the role of women in political change. Today I thought we’d take a closer look at some of those booths, starting with a booth completely dedicated to celebrating strong women – She Paper!

I love Emily McDowell‘s realistic take on lady power – women helping empower other women through late night text message exchanges! So I’m not the only one??
