It can sometimes seem like a pretty bleak time to be a woman in the world and, so then, we think it's more important than ever to  celebrate brave and daring female figures. A new book by Kate Spade, the fourth the brand has released, does just that. Filled with candy floss pink pages, it tells the story of intelligent, flamboyant, pioneering women, and you’re sure to come across your own heroes when flicking through.

Guiding readers through the lives, work and style of notable Kate Spade muses, the book spotlights fictional characters like Holly Golightly and modern day figures like Leandra Medine. A timeline of Gloria Steinem’s work for women’s rights – from her beginnings as a journalist living in New York in the 1960s right up to launching a Vice docu-series exploring violence against women last year – sits alongside stylish black and white shots of the activist. A section is also playfully dedicated to the "fiercely inappropriate" things that legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland made appropriate – bikinis and ballet slippers make up just a few (yes, really!)

If one things for certain it's that you'll close this book feeling reenergised, inspired and proud to be a woman.
