The best book EVER written by a woman!

message 2: by Donna (new)

Donna Davis Deleted for being authored by men: Night,by Elie Wiesel and Betsi Cadwaladr by John Evans. It is interesting to note that James Tiptree Jr. is actually the pen name of a female author...glad I checked before tapping that key!


message 3: by Donna (new)

Donna Davis I am amazed that a list that's been up and running this long lacked most of the original feminist writers. Added Audre Lord, Simone de Beauvoir, bell hooks, Toni Morrison, as well as the recent masterpiece penned by Isabel Wilkerson and although I disagree with some of her work, could not omit Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow.


message 4: by Mandeep (new)

Mandeep Singh Meantime Girl, by Sindhu S is a gripping story and one that many of us can, and do, go through in our lives. An eye-opener, perhaps, for those who wish to get into a relationship and what awaits them. A must-read!
