I recently came across The Reconstructionists, a collaboration between illustrator Lisa Congdon and writer Maria Popova.  Each Monday welcomes a new illustration and mini essay about an inspirational woman, posted to their shared Tumblr page.  Not only are the illustrations beautiful, but the prose is stimulating; I've found myself actually looking forward to Mondays just to read the latest chapter.

The Reconstructionists is "a yearlong celebration of remarkable women...who have changed the way we define ourselves as a culture and live our lives as individuals of any gender."
