About the Book

Showcasing over 30 inspirational women, including Florence Nightingale (the founder of modern nursing), Georgia O'Keeffe (the artist and mother of American modernism) and Rosa Luxemburg (the theorist and revolutionist), who all have one thing in common – their affection towards cats.

The empowering stories of cat-loving women – ranging from artists, pioneers, writers and humanitarians – who dared to change and inspire the world are paired with Lulu Mayo's quirky illustrations.

Also featuring 10 things we can learn from cats, a feline flow chart, quotes from famous women who loved their moggies, and much more.

The book celebrates the cat as muse, companion, colleague and emotional support as it explodes the myth of a 'cat lady'.

About the Author

Justine was born in Bedfordshire into a family of cat lovers, growing up alongside two tortoiseshells named Moppet and Bow Ring. A keen writer from an early age, she had her first short story published aged 12 years old.

Behind Every Great Woman is a Great Cat is her first book. Justine now lives in London with her husband, Adam. Sadly they don't currently have a cat, so Justine makes do with video calling Figaro, a Barcelona-based cat belonging to a friend. In her spare time, Justine enjoys travelling and drinking too much coffee.
