I'm working on a project and I need to know which books are the top books about feminism. Also, let's include any books that greatly influenced the feminist movement. Any ideas? Thanks!

Lindsay Here's another feminist-books list you might want to check out:

message 3: by Kate (new)

Kate You should add FEAR OF FLYING by Erica Jong

and

EGALIA'S DAUGTHERS by Gerd Brantenberg


message 4: by Muriel (new)

Muriel Lumb Was sorry not to see The Woman's Room by Marilyn French :( Great list tho :)


epiphenomenalism Such a bad list. Hardly any books worth reading. J.Butler's Gender Trouble should have been at the very top but it's not even mentioned in the list. Meh.


message 6: by Jade (new)

Jade Blackwell There are a few books that I may think you would like to add to this list.

Firstly, Alice Walker 'The Color Purple'. If you are interested in feminist literature, this one is a good one to put on the list.

Secondly, Sylvia Plath 'The Bell Jar'. I suggest this book to those who enjoy the work of Virginia Woolf, and Margaret Atwood. You will not be disappointed.

Lastly, speaking of Atwood, her novels, 'Bodily Harm', and 'Surfacing', are both worth a read.
