The Rights and Involved Duties of Mankind Considered, chapter one

If you missed my study of the introduction and purpose of this first feminist classic, find it here. I love that Mary Wollstonecraft named the chapters. It's not my favorite thing in a fictional story, but I do love it in books like this that are building an argument. I had been thinking about a... Continue Reading →

Luke 12

For the text of Luke 12, click here. We began with a warning about the "leaven of the Pharisees". In the previous mentions in Mark 8 and Matthew 16, it had been a little confusing but this one is much more straightforward. Jesus warns them and adds that people will know everything that's been going on.... Continue Reading →

September Reviews

I know things dropped off this month. Virtual school turned into a bit of a mess this month and I barely read or listened to anything, let alone got any blogging done. I do miss the blog when I'm away from it. As mentioned a few months ago, I've moved the reviews as they out... Continue Reading →

As before, I don't have books for every single one, but am always taking suggestions to fill these lists up. This is my first year getting into the international observances. Researching these days and looking for books... Continue Reading →

August Reviews

So ends another amazing Women in Translation Month! I never finish as many titles this month as I want to, but there's still the rest of the year to read WIT too. This year, I made a special effort to find books translated from Spanish. I realized it's an area of literature that I had... Continue Reading →

It is requested that Jesus teach them to pray and His response is for them to pray: “Father, hallowed be your name.Your kingdom come.3Give us each day our daily bread,b4and forgive us our sins,for we...

Feminism Book List

As mentioned a few days ago, I compiled the list of books on the UN Women's Instagram and all the suggestions into one big book list. It was made in Goodreads to make these titles easy to find, though a few titles are missing. While making this, I did notice that some were doubles but... Continue Reading →

75 Books of Feminism

There is a canon of feminist books out there that I know I have barely scratched the surface on. This is the beginning of my project to change all that. I was deciding how best to go about acquiring a good list of the feminist books to study through when I saw this post on... Continue Reading →
