Immersion in feminism in 2017
I’m probably not the only one feeling like 2017 is the year to re-embrace feminism. Not that I’ve ever abandoned it, but I haven’t been actively reading and immersing myself in feminist culture probably since I was a teenager. But with the political situation in the USA, it feels like the right time to engage again with this material and question even further the world around me.
I’ve put together a reading list to get me started. Maybe listening (music and podcasts) and watching (films, tv shows and speeches) lists will follow but that’ll take a bit more research and it looks like I’ll be busy reading for awhile!
Feminist Reading List
This is a personal list of what I want to read (or reread) and I am sure there are more extensive and more focused lists out there. This list is just a a mix, in no particular order, of fiction and non-fiction that I am going to try to read in the next 11 months (quite a challenge seeing as in the past 5 years of motherhood I’ve probably only managed to get through a handful of books).
Over the past year there have been so many books added to my reading lists… here are just a few of the places where the books on this list came from:
- Amelia Bloomer Lists
- Know Your Feminisms (New York Public Library)
- 12 essential books every modern feminist should read
- 21 Books Every Woman Should Read In Her Lifetime
What would be on your list?
