Feminist Psychology by Aarti Dua

This product was recommended by Shelly Peel from socialmum

The book is full of helpful insights. We may often read best-selling books, but at times, those that are less popular seem to be a good source of inspiration and motivation too. If you’re looking for a fresh and new range of ideas on social constructionism, I would recommend this book.

This book is about the stories of feminists in the 1960s and ’70s. In the expectation that they can inspire and empower readers to take their own chances and their own journeys to the very limits of human possibility, the 48 women share their life stories.

Women and Madness by Phyllis Chesler

This product was recommended by Geninna Ariton from Trendhim

Feminist icon Chesler’s pioneering work has been revised and updated for the first time in 30 years. This definitive book was the first to address critical questions about women and mental health. Combining patient interviews with an analysis of women’s roles in history, society, and myth Chesler conclude that there is a terrible double standard when it comes to women’s psychology. In this new edition, she addresses head-on many of the most relevant issues to women and mental health today, including eating disorders, social acceptance of antidepressants, addictions, sexuality, postpartum depression, and more. Fully revised and updated, Women and Madness remain as important today as it was when first published in 1972.

This product was recommended by Robin Chant from Art of Choosing You

I am a Female Fire Fighter / Paramedic for 27 years and I wrote a book about judgement and being honoured for your choices! It is a personal journey of me choosing to become a Fire fighter and then tools that I later discovered to honour myself & my choices! I have also climbed Kilimanjaro and volunteered at ground zero! Being a feminist growing up was such an identity of mine – playing hockey with the boys when it wasn’t allowed – only female in my physics class which I love physics! Helping my dad out on the farm! Always knew I desired a career to inspire others to choose more!
