The Future Is Equal! Brush Up With These 6 Must-Read Feminist Books
We’re no strangers to the word ‘feminism’ but the big question mark remains at how well do we know it? Is it a movement for women to trash men? Or is it a movement to throw them out of power? Well, no. A solid N-O. If we look it up on Meriam-Webster, it refers to the theory of political, economic, and social equality of the sexes. In layman terms, it means a world where men and women share the SAME benefits and treatment. There’s no discrimination against guys, power struggle, or anything like that – feminism is for EVERYONE.
And thanks to all advocators (past and present), we’re now at a point where the majority of girls have the basic rights of education, employment, freedom of speech and so on. Undeniably, it’s a big step but we’re not quite at the finish line yet as issues like gender pay gap and period poverty are still firmly in the limelight. To progress from our kind-of stagnant place, lets educate ourselves with a book for starters. Whether you’re looking to go deeper and learn the different perspectives of feminism or simply read to be inspired by feminist heroes, here are 6 timeless reads you have to pick up!
When a group of celebrities, activists and artists come together for the same cause, you get something as loud and powerful as this — a masterpiece that discusses feminism from all angles. Hear them share personal stories on what the F-word really means to them.
