We’re big fans of women throughout history here at Quirk Books — so much so that we’ve published several books about them! In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re looking back on our favorite girl squads throughout history with a fun, feminist quiz. (Bonus points if you complete the quiz with your BFF.) Grab your pencils and brush up on your history because this quiz is one for the ages. Literally.
Because these women are timeless. Okay, you get it. You totally get it.

Captain Marvel is hitting theaters nationwide this week and we couldn’t be more excited. Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson in the sure to be blockbuster film, has a storied history in the Marvel universe. She came onto the scene in 1968 as the first to hold the Ms. Marvel name. (Kamala Khan currently holds the title, long may she reign.) In 2012, she assumed the mantle of Captain Marvel -- a role originally held by Mar-Vell. And we’ve been cheering her on ever since.

Ah, toast. A staple of breakfasts, poor students, busy people in need of a bite, and of course, millennials everywhere (but only when topped with avocado). Just a slice of bread, heated by the magic of a toaster until it becomes warm, filling, crunchy, and the perfect way to get all kinds of delicious toppings into your mouth. Simple.
Less simple, of course, is the other kind of toast. The kind where someone has to get up in front of friends and family and say a few words. Ideally, words that are kind, funny, interesting, illuminating…and not too long. So in honor of National Toast Day on February 23, we’ve rounded up some of the most memorable toasts in pop culture, whether they're good, bad, or awful!
