1. Read a book written by a female author that is new to you.
2. Read a book written by a female of color.
3. Read a nonfiction book written by a female author.
4. Read a biography (not a memoir) about a woman.
5. Read a book that is classified as “feminist.” (Can be fiction)
6. Read a book where a woman disguises herself as man.
7. Read a book where the woman in the story does not conform to gender norms.
8. Read a book about a woman/women during a time of war.
9. Read a book where the antagonist is a female.
10. Read a book with a woman's name in the title.

Choose a number of tasks to complete - you don't need to do all 10 - and post your goal here.

Lisa will be leading this challenge

The first thing that popped into my head, bookwise for task 7, was "The Hunger Games Trilogy"

Otherwise, I think of figures like Joan of Arc, Jeannette Pickering Rankin, Mary Wollstonecraft, Anna Nzinga....
Or modern women who have challenged gender stereotypes, such as Ellen Degeneres, Hilary Clinton, etc.
