8 Feminist Books Meant For Girls

Literature for an early future feminist.

Feminism is girl stuff! And it’s our duty to introduce the next generation to its many concepts. The sooner we do that, the better!

Today, our culture is doing more things right for our girls now than ever before. But there’s a lot of room for improvement.

The battle is still on and soon it’ll be up to the young ones to take the torch.

Our goal is to preserve the movement’s legacy of equality of rights for the foreseeable future and beyond. To do that, girls must learn from an early age to stand up for themselves and never let anyone keep them down just because of their gender.

Help the next generation find their inner strength early, with the best Feminist books for girls.

#4 Saint Everywhere: Travels in Search of the Lady by Mary Lea Carroll

While visiting Siena, Italy, Mary Lea Carroll grew fascinated with the remarkable story of St. Catherine of Siena and made a resolution: Whenever she was lucky enough to travel, if a shrine dedicated to a female saint was nearby, she’d visit it and learn about her. What started as a hobby grew into a journey she never expected, one rich with challenges and cappuccinos, doubts and inspiration, glasses of wine with strangers and moments of transcendence. Over eight quests, Carroll takes readers along with her as she seeks to learn something from a few great women of history, while looking for ways to be a better citizen of the world.

#6 Trumping The Rape Culture and Sexual Assault by Alexandra Allred

The book was written for pre-teen, teenage, college-bound girl/young ladies to dispel the ridiculous and dangerous myths about those who ask for sexual assault and/or harassment. The way a girl dresses, walks, talks holds no bearing on any kind of aggression or unwanted attention. Yet, we continue to see how females are viewed based on appearance, attire, and attitude. I called the b.s. card on this and entitled the book with intent.
