Other Feminist Reads

Hey Guys!

Hope you are enjoying The Notorious RBG! Because this is such a stellar telling of the life of a key feminist of the past century, I wanted to point out some other seminal feminist pieces!

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

By: Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDun

.
This book beautifully explains that while feminism is something we continually need to strive for in the US and other developed countries, the suffering and need is necessary on a global scale. They discuss sex trafficking as well as skills building and loans. Amazing story telling coupled with informative narrative really makes this an astounding read.

By: Caitlin Moran

Caitlin Moran is a fabulous comedian from the UK. Within her book she discusses the hilarious stories and heart wrenching pitfalls of growing into a woman that respects herself and fights for equality. Her audiobook had be in tears from laughing and then yelling from injustice. This book is not informative to the plight of the gender, but it is a great narrative delivered with comedy and snark.

Of course the list could go on and on! However these are two on either end of the spectrum in terms of feminist lit. I have always considered myself a feminist, but have just begun reading a variety of materials on the topic. Both of these selections I read as a result of Our Shared Shelf, Emma Watson’s feminist book club. Her picks are so enlightening and not always what we expect. So please check out their group on Goodreads for more recommendations!
