Feminism in 300 pages or less.

As exciting and life-changing as it was to dive into Simone de Beauvoir's "Second Sex", sometimes you just don't have the time and energy for a whopping 800 page giant of social critique. The Second Sex is a five-course meal. But sometimes you just want a light snack - something that's quick, but doesn't make your brain feel like it's rotting (I'm looking at you, Lauren Weisburger).

So, this list is dedicated to feminist books that are UNDER 300 PAGES. This can be literature/fiction, non fiction, collections of poetry, or short-story anthologies. What constitutes as feminist? That's subject to interpretation, naturally. What empowers you? What books changed your life, your perception of women's traditional roles in society? What literature makes you want to "destroy the patriarchy"?

BookLovingLady Can someone explain why The Diary of a Young Girl (#7) is on this list? Although an impressive book, it has nothing whatsoever to do with feminism, if you'd ask me.... But that's just my opinion, of course, which is why I'd lilke someone to clearify why it has been put on this list (and why people are voting for it).
