This Book of New York Times Articles Celebrates Over 150 Years of Historic Women

For well over a century, The New York Times has reported on countless historic moments in the fight for women's rights. And while there’s still plenty of progress to be made, you can look back on how far we’ve come with New York Times - Women Making History, an 87-page coffee table book that reprints articles on the major milestones in the women's equality movement just as they appeared in the paper over the decades. The book is available on UncommonGoods for $50.

This title has more than 150 years’ worth of articles detailing major marches, laws, and social movements, from coverage of the Equal Rights Convention of 1866 and suffrage marches of the early 20th century, all the way through the #MeToo era and the Time's Up movement from 2018. (You can check out the rest of the table of contents online [PDF].) The book also features an introduction by Susan Chira, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and Gender Issues editor at The New York Times.

But this book won’t just help you learn more about important historic figures and events, because $5 of every purchase goes to Women for Women International, a nonprofit that advocates for women around the world. Started back in 1993, the organization helps women in eight different countries that have been afflicted by war or conflict. Their outreach enables women to earn and save money, get access to better healthcare, and much more. To date, they’ve given aid to more than 478,000 people.

Welcome to the Party, Pal: A Die Hard Board Game Exists

USAOPOLY/Amazon
USAOPOLY/Amazon

On the heels of the 30th anniversary of the classic Bruce Willis action film Die Hard last year, tabletop board game company The OP has created a game that will see John McClane once again battle his way through Nakatomi Plaza. Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist is a board game officially licensed by Fox Consumer Products that drops players into a setting familiar to anyone who has seen the film: As New York cop McClane tries to reconcile with his estranged wife, he must navigate a team of cutthroat thieves set on overtaking a Los Angeles high-rise.

The game has a one-against-many format, with one player assuming the role of McClane and the other players conspiring as the thieves to eliminate him from the Plaza.

The OP, also known as USAOpoly, has previously created games based on Avengers: Infinity War and the Harry Potter franchise. Die Hard has spawned four sequels, the most recent being 2013’s A Good Day to Die Hard. Willis will likely return as McClane for a sixth installment that will alternate between the present day and his rookie years in the NYPD. That film has no release date set.

The board game is available for purchase on Amazon now for $40.
