Recommendations for feminist books?
The Bell Jar
Fiction or nonfiction?
@Tina look for recommendations for both honestly.
@Lauren Nonfiction – anything by Rebecca Traister. Men explain things to me by rebecca solnit. Bad feminist by roxanne gay. We should all be feminists. A room of ones own by virginia woolf. Feminism is for everybody by bell hooks. Fiction – The Power by Naomi Alderman. Little women. The female persuasion by meg wolitzer. Thats what i got at the moment. Theres a LOT out there though.
The Beauty Myth
Just commenting to get the suggestions for my list 🙂
We Should All Be Feminists (2014) by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – she has the most wonderful sense of humor. Only 52 pages
I really enjoyed this little gem
I got this on audiobook and it is SO SO SO good! I listened to it 3 times.
@Lauren it was everything I felt inside me but had never even actually put into thought, if that makes sense. Because it was all so normal.
@Megan Totally. I seriously thought about ordering 25 copies around Christmas and randomly handing them out to women I run into out in public
The Awakening (1899) by Kate Chopin. I believe it does not end the way the writer wished, which in of itself reflects the time it was written
@Yuki this is my absolute favorite book of all time🌸
@Abbey Such great writing! I enjoyed rereading it a few years ago — stood up just fine to a couple decades of life.
I loved this one too
@Megan loved this one!
