a feminist-activist booklist​

 

 

As I’ve mentioned, many obnoxious times, I decided to read a lot this summer. I figured that during the school year I wouldn’t be able to read the books I really wanted to. Taking advantage of this time, I’m reading books that I really want to. These are books, that have given me different perspectives on things, given me new role models, and have helped shape my views as a feminist. I’ll leave links to the books, but I also recommend checking out your local used books stores. A few of these books I found at used books stores, for cheap and still good quality.  I also really like book recommendations, so feel free to leave them down in the comments.

What else is there to do on a summer morning except to make a vision board. I like having order in my life, having a plan, a schedule. I obviously had to be even more planned and organized out, which led me to make a vision board. My sister and I cut things out of fashion magazines that “spoke to us”. What spoke to me were headlines about the women joining Congress. What spoke to my sister were ads for chocolate bars. That doesn’t matter, but we had fun collaging and were able to get through half a season of friends.
