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 →

The Girl Who Wrote Loneliness by Kyung-Sook Shin, translated by Ha-Yun Jung

Review: It's not very often that a work of fiction gets to me as much as this one did. It was beautiful and haunting and familiar and foreign all at the same time. Homesick and alone, a teenage girl has just arrived in Seoul to work in a factory. Her family, still in the countryside, is... Continue Reading →

The Happenings – July

It's been a fairly busy month. I got lots of reading and lots of blogging done. I did a few more Top Ten Tuesdays and less Femme Fridays than normal. I still don't plan on holding myself to a schedule and participate as I am able instead. It keeps me from being as crazy as... Continue Reading →

The Happenings – June

June has been a busy month and a good one. I do love being busy, not so much that I don't feel like I have time for myself, but enough that the days pass and boredom never quite sets in. Of course, for me, busy can include long periods of down time if I have... Continue Reading →

Suggested Reading for New Intersectional Feminists

After spending some time with a fellow feminist friend of mine, I realized that I needed to put together a beginners list. Okay, she asked for one and I wanted it to share it with everyone. This is not a comprehensive list, but it's as intersectional as I can provide. There is a serious lack... Continue Reading →

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

Review: I know, it's disgraceful that I could call myself a feminist and hadn't read this yet. Well, not entirely, but I totally get it. I finally picked it up as part of my Read Harder list, character with a mental illness.  As with most of my fiction, I actually listened to the book rather... Continue Reading →

The Happenings

I'm starting to feel like I'm getting a handle on this blog. It's not perfect and I still get a little rushed, but I'm getting the timing worked out. I did not intend on turning this into one of those blogs that have posts as often as I do these days, but it's fun and... Continue Reading →
