50 Ways to Improve Women's Lives was like a junior encyclopedia for gender issues that plague women. Topics addressed ranged from health, family, financial to domestic and sexual violence issues to gun control, and how each of these issues specifically effects women in invisible ways, as well as offering proactive solutions- without being overly aggressive- in an easy to digest format. This book would make a great feminism 101 primer.

Meh. It's not bad, it's just an introduction to some really simple concepts. Stop sexual harassment, promote health care and decent sex ed, that sort of thing.

Recommends it for: young feminist activists
It's an okay read. The chapters are short, which makes it a quick read, but it's as though by the time you get to the end of the short chapter, you're just starting to delve into an issue. Most of the action steps at the end of the chapters involve calling your legislators, which is a good idea, but not the only way to effect change.
