There’s no better way to get educated, get inspired, and get impassioned better than opening up a good book. There’s something about reading another person’s words that can so easily justify your feelings about a topic, in this case, feminism. For someone who doesn’t read as much as they’d like to admit, when I do find an attention-grabbing book I never want to put it down. But, this is quite rare for me.
It wasn’t until I picked up We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, that I found myself having such a hard time putting my bookmark in and calling it a night. While yes I could’ve just finished the damn thing right there, I had to remind myself of the next morning’s dreaded 8am. It was then that I realized my love for books with that women-empowering-girls-can-do-anything kind of mantra. I thought I’d recommend a few of my favorites as well as mention a couple I hope to read in 2018.
1. We Should All Be Feminists
3. Hungry: A Young Model’s Story of Appetite, Ambition, and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves
4. The Princess Saves Herself in This One
5. Why I March
Winter break is just around the corner! Whether you’re looking for a good way to relax after a long semester or you’re still trying to figure out gifts for friends, this list should help you. What a better pastime than a good book? Feminist or not, I recommend getting your hands on these.
