Books That Matter is a monthly subscription service delivering important pieces of literature and feminist trinkets to your door. Each month you will receive at least one piece of literature which enlightens your mind on themes of gender, race, culture, class, ethnicity, ability, sexuality, politics, or history, as well as at least two gifts by independent female-identifying or non-binary artists. 

Our woman-run team have created this beautiful box to promote the reading of truly important world literature, and we aim to collaborate with female identifying artists and writers to bring you titles by not only women writers, but underrepresented voices too, such as those of women of colour, transgender authors, less able women, and queer writers. Every trinket you receive alongside your books will be handcrafted by an independent female artist and will be in support of her trade. 

"I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own."

Female entrepreneur

Meet the team 

Molly founded Books That Matter in 2017, whilst still in her second year at university studying English Literature. Hugely passionate about women's writing, feminism and activism, Molly created the subscription box company as a way to raise up the voices of women writers and creatives (inclusive of transgender and non-binary persons), and to create a platform for social change and empowerment. She was able to start up the company after becoming the first female winner of the entrepreneurship competition, StartUp Sussex. Molly runs the company from Bristol and lives with her partner and their rescue cat, Aphrodite.
