While this series only acknowledged the basics of feminism, there is a whole genre of literature to explore that goes more in-depth in the feminist movement than a series of blog posts ever could. Note that I am only listing books that I have read; as I would not recommend to someone a book that I have never opened.
Feminism: A Very Short Introduction – Margaret Walters
We Should All Be Feminists – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
A Room of One’s Own – Virginia Woolf
White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Backpack – Peggy McIntosh
Men Explain Things to Me – Rebecca Solnit
Dear White People – Justin Simien
The Purity Myth: How American’s Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women – Jessica Valenti
The Vagina Monologues – Eve Ensler
The Yellow Wallpaper – Charlotte Perkins Gilman
To the Lighthouse – Virginia Woolf
Feminist Fables – Suniti Namjoshi
Diving into the Wreck – Adrienne Rich
Phenomenal Woman: Four Poems Celebrating Women – Maya Angelou
The Selected Poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay – Edna St. Vincent Millay
If you would like, here is my Goodreads shelf of books that I’ve read on feminism or those that are feminist. If you’re like me, (and I like to rate everything on Goodreads!) then you’ll like to know that everything on this list is listed in the Goodreads database.
On a final note, feminism is simply about equality. It is not its stereotypes, anyone can be a feminist, and it is needed for a future with an equal society.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the #FeminismFriday series as much as I have! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments!
