Top Ten Tuesday --- FREEBIE -- Top Ten Feminist Books I Want to Read


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

1. We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
2. Fight Like A Girl: 50 Feminists Who Changed the World by

    1. The Handmaid's Tale is a novel I've already read, so it didn't make the list of books I want to read, Plus, I was trying to focus on nonfiction books for my post this week.

  5. None of these are familiar to me, but then I'll admit my reading tends more towards fiction. :D Thanks so much for stopping by Finding Wonderland.

  10. I've heard that Roxanne Gay's books are awesome. She has a new one out this month (short stories) and later this year another nonfiction book. This sounds like a fantastic and inspiring list.

      I've read some really good feminist works. Last year in fact, I enjoyed reading the following:

      1. My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem (Memoir, but is a must read for those interested in iconic Feminist Gloria Steinem)
      2. This Common Secret: My Journey As An Abortion Doctor by Susan Wicklund
      3. The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lapore (Lots of feminist theory/historyin this book)
      4. I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai (Memoir, but great on why educating women is important.)

      In previous years, I've enjoyed reading:

      1. No Turning Back: The History of Feminism and the Future of Women by Estelle Freedman
      2. Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters by Jessica Valenti
