Tiffany  | 545 comments I recommend The Cure for Dreaming. It was awesome! It's YA historical fantasy, and very very feminist.
The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy was good too, but it's a sequel.

"The Lilac Girls" by Martha Hall Kelly. Tough read, but really good.

Rheanna (goodreadscomuser_rheanna) It's already been said but The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (and some parts of The Gentleman's Guide) is a great feminist book. Also basically any classic written by a female author, due to the time it was written it can seem un-feminist and submissive, but the female characters are actually pretty feminist in relation to setting. And Wilder Girls definitely.

Sofia (sofloaf) | 13301 comments The Vanishing Half is soooo good. It's not specifically feminist, but it's empowering.
