Feminist books!


To celebrate, I thought I’d make a list of feminist books. These are books that are explicitly feminist, subtly feminist, have good female representation, books I think all feminists should read, etc. Most of these I’ve talked at length about before, so I’ll link to relevant posts! If you have any questions, though, let me know!



Adult or New Adult

  • Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: not explicitly about feminism, but looks at female relationships and has great female relationships
  • The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman: very feminist for it’s time; I just think everyone should read it
  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood: talks about rape culture and freedoms; very interesting; a classic in feminist lit
  • A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki: a really interesting look at two very different women and their lives; not inherently feminist but has great women


Those are all my recommendations! Any feminist books you’d recommend?

Thanks for reading! xx

  1. Great list! I adored the Sun and her Flowers and THUG! Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu is also a really good YA fiction book about feminism
