Our Tarot - A Feminist Tarot Deck by Sarah Shipman

"Some decks may be stacked against us...but this deck is ours. Our Tarot."

Just came across this fabulous feminist Tarot deck on Kickstarter, highlighting 78 powerful women from history. 

Emily Dickinson as The Hermit, Hildegard of Bingen as The High Priestess, Josephine Baker as the Queen of Wands, Joan of Arc as The Fool, Harriet Tubman as The Chariot, Abigail Williams (one of the primary initial accusers at the Salem Witch Trials) as The Devil--doesn't Our Tarot sound delicious?

I'm so glad I caught the crowdfunding campaign in time, as there's only 7 days left. You, too, can support this deck and find out more about the artist and the cards at the Our Tarot Kickstarter page.
