Book recommendations on ‘Feminism’.

Many books have been written on the concept of feminism. In fact, many debates have been fought regarding its meaning. So, today we shall have a glimpse of the books which one should read to know the meaning of feminism.

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This is a book written by a Nigerian-born woman. Basically, this book is in the form of a personal essay and talks about the importance of feminism in the twenty-first century. At the same time, in this book, Adichie stresses the point that “feminist" is not an insult, but rather a label that should be proudly embraced by all.

The Future is Feminist by Mallory Farrugia

This book is all about what it means to be feminist yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Interestingly, this book is a compilation of many articles written by renowned feminist poets, essayists, professors, and activists. If anyone is looking to read strong-minded articles on feminism, then this is the book!

Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay

This is a book that explores being a feminist while loving things that could seem odd along with the feminist ideology. In this book, Gay pens down about pop culture and her personal experiences, too. In an interview, Gay had said, “In each of these essays, I'm trying to show how feminism influences my life for better or worse. It shows what it's like to move through the world as a woman. It's not even about feminism per se, it's about humanity and empathy."

Feminism is for Everybody by Bell Hooks

In this book, Hooks shows how feminism is not about creating divisions between men and women, rather it is for society as a whole. Moreover, Hooks, in this book, focuses on feminism as a political movement for everybody. So, if you're someone who thinks that feminism is only for women to preach, then you must read this book to enlighten yourself.

By Maria Wirth
