What is your top feminist read?

July 2014

Tell us which book inspires you the most.

Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex, Alice Walker’s The Colour Purple, Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues…? Did you read it at school, has it shaped your politics, or how you view society? We want to find out what book inspires you and 40 words on why.

We will pick 10 entries and publish them as a web-only feature of recommended reads as part of our double issue on Feminism, out now. If yours is chosen, we’ll send you a free copy. We’ll share all of the entries on social media.

If you would like to know something about what's actually going on, rather than what people would like you to think was going on, then read the New Internationalist.
