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.

There are heads... Continue Reading →

Everything has an angle and I know that's true for these... Continue Reading →

Looking back at Ruth

Given the small size of the book of Ruth, it only took one post to do the whole thing and to have a little reflection, which is below with some changes. The original post that has chapter breakdowns is available here. Notable Women Naomi - Ruth's mother in law who she is determined to care... Continue Reading →

Looking back at Judges

Judges is about the downward spiral of Israel before their monarchy begins. It starts off like they might just make it passed some hiccups but even the judges themselves become progressively worse. Notable Women Deborah, obviously. She is one of the better known women of the Bible. The whole of chapter five is a song... Continue Reading →
