Introduction to A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

As mentioned previously, I am beginning with this book in my reading of the feminist canon. It is the first book that I found that specifically advocates for women to have rights equal to that of men and in many ways sets up the idea of feminism for generations to come. It was written by...

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 →

Books for the Resistance

I saw today that UN Women posted "A Woman's Place is in the Resistance" on Instagram and it just set my mind reeling. Of course, a woman's place is definitely in the Resistance, but I hadn't originally planned on posting on it. Then I became a little obsessed and here we are. First of all,... Continue Reading →

Ask Me About My Uterus: A Quest to Make Doctors Believe in Women’s Pain by Abby Norman

An interesting memoir from a woman plagued by pain and the advocacy that came from it.

Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change by Ellen Pao

Memoir Monday!! It's so disappointing how much I can relate to Ellen Pao and all the things she went through before the trial. This is an important book for anyone who seeks inclusion in the workplace to see just how that still doesn't happen and get an idea of what can be done about it.

Never Have I Ever: My Life (So Far) Without a Date by Katie Heaney

Memoir Monday!! An adorable memoir on being uncoupled but not alone with some beautifully made feminist points on the importance of coupling.

Anthologies of the Women Who Paved the Way

Over the years of writing this blog, I've particularly enjoyed reading about the amazing women who have come before me to change the world they lived in so that it could become the one that I was born into. We still have a long way to go for the women who come after us, but... Continue Reading →

Rad Women Worldwide

I read Rad American Women a while back and had been intending to read this ever since. As with the first book, this is a phenomenal list of women doing great work to improve the lives of women everywhere.  The compilation of women is a little unexpected, but in a good way. There are heads... Continue Reading →

Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong—and the New Research That’s Rewriting the Story by Angela Saini

Review: I LOVE this book. I've had a bit of a thing for science and research books about women since I read Delusions of Gender back in 2015.  It's interesting but I know enough to take it with a grain of salt too, like the news. Everything has an angle and I know that's true for these... Continue Reading →
