This New York Times best-seller is a must-read for feminists all around the world as it’s a fantastic text that addresses how feminism has historically (and recently) failed to embrace inclusivity, intersectionality, and racism within the very same movement. Through her unflinching critique of today’s feminist movement, Kendall makes an invigorating call to action to all women who are part of the ‘white feminism’ movement whose only purpose is to increase and broaden an existing privilege. Overall, it is a truly eye-opening read that all feminists would likely find extremely interesting.

This is a book that articulates complications with commodifying feminism and elucidates why most women hate capitalism. I am incredibly fond of this book because I adore how the author exposes the transformation of feminism. From being a biased and defied concept to a shameless ideology used in marketing and pop culture.

I recommend this to my feminist friends for a couple of reasons. First, the book exposes the various struggles that women face as they try to find their way in the world. The characters are complex and flawed, which makes them feel real and relatable. Second, Alcott provides an excellent example of sisterhood and female solidarity. The sisters are supportive of each other through thick and thin, and they refuse to let society dictate how they should behave or what they should value. Finally, “Little Women” is a feminist classic for a reason. It offers a positive view of womanhood that is sorely needed in today’s society.

The Color Purple is an incredible book for many reasons, but especially because it is a powerful story of female empowerment. The protagonist, Celie, is a young black woman who suffers abuse at the hands of her father and later her husband. Despite the odds, she manages to find her own strength and voice, ultimately overcoming the oppression she faces. This makes The Color Purple an excellent choice for a gift for any feminist in your life. It is a book that will inspire hope and courage, and remind the reader that it is always possible to triumph over adversity.
