Do you know that feeling when you see or read about something that is so bad*ss that you wonder...WHO IS BEHIND THIS GENIUS?! (FYI: This actually happens a lot to us over at BRIKA when we discover our newest Makers to feature every day.) It certainly happened when I came across The Reconstructionists, a collaboration between crazy-talented illustrator Lisa Congdon (BRIKA's Tastemaker this week) and writer Maria Popova.

Every Monday, they publish an illustrated portrait of a trailblazing woman, along with a hand-lettered quote that captures her spirit and a short micro-essay about her life and legacy. This is "a yearlong celebration of remarkable women — beloved artists, writers and scientists, as well as notable unsung heroes — who have changed the way we define ourselves as a culture and live our lives as individuals of any gender." Downright AMAZING. We could not be more inspired by what these ladies are doing. - Jen
