Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit

This product was recommended by James Black from Wilderness Redefined

As a Millenial Man, I didn’t really think mansplaining existed. Until Rebecca Solnit explained it to me! And she’s absolutely right. Society – and most of the men in – simply don’t see the latent, prevalent sexism underlying so much of social interaction. An eye-opener, completely relevant and – notwithstanding the humor of her writing – sobering. Well explained Rebecca!


Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

This product was recommended by Charli Burbidge from Petz

Little Women is such a powerful book about female liberation and the feminist mobement. While the book was originally targeting young girls of the time, the words spoken within it are still relevant today. This book brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion, and was a real pleasure to read, knowing how much this book has changed the world, single handedly.’


Ain’t I a Woman? By Bell Hooks

This product was recommended by Marianna Lastovetska from Tiktal

The author Bell Hooks (her real name Gloria Jeanne Watkins) was a well-known activist. In her book, she examines the historical impact of racism and sexism on black women. The writer makes an accent on the importance of feminism and explains why it is so important for each of us. As for me, this book like the previous one is easy-to-read, extremely interesting and powerful even today.


The Second Sex by Simone De Beauvoir

This product was recommended by Marianna Lastovetska from Tiktal

If you just start being interested in feminism, I highly recommend beginning your journey with this book. Over the years The second Sex stays number one in the list of Feminist books and is considered to be the largest historic-philosophical research in this area. Reading this classical book, you will get to know more about attitude to the women through the ages, also you will be more familiar with feminine psychology and sociology. Even though this is a classical book with a scientific approach, you will read it easily.


The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer

This product was recommended by Kryz Uy from KryzUy

The book may be a little old but still ultimately relevant. It’s thought-provoking! As you go reading each chapter, it makes you feel every emotion – angst, happiness, pain, and everything else. It is one of those impactful feminist books ever written.


Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde

This product was recommended by Shelly Peel from SocialMum

Audre must be one of the greatest feminist poets. The book is about finding hope despite racism and homophobia. It is an extraordinary and powerful must-have book. I would highly recommend reading it!


The Awakening by Kate Chopin

This product was recommended by Julianne Buonocore from Jules Buono

The Awakening, published in 1899, is an early feminist work set in New Orleans and the Southern Louisiana coast at the end of the nineteenth century. The plot centers on Edna Pontellier’s difficulties reconciling her unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social norms of the South.
