Whether or not you call yourself a feminist, you should read these books.

As a woman, your life is fundamentally different from a man's.2

For centuries, women have been exploring, challenging, and embracing these differences.

These books represent a small sample of amazing feminist books throughout history.

1. The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan

Contract, Bury St Edmunds, Commentary, font, document,

Betty Friedan reignited the feminist movement in 1963 with this book.

In this book, Friedan describes the "problem that has no name" that plagued many housewives of her time who felt like marriage was the only goal of her entire existence.

This book motivated many women to join the workforce and stay in it.

Not only is it culturally important, but The Feminine Mystique is also a well-written novel and interesting read!

2. Spinster by Katie Block

Calling a woman a spinster in the 21st century might be in poor taste, but Katie Block doesn't shy away from calling herself one.

More and more women are remaining unmarried for longer, yet "two questions define every woman’s existence": who will I marry and when?

As Katie looks into her own life as a memoir, she also observes our culture, which helps you look at your own life and find peace.

3. A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf

Evening Interior, book, document, VIR, one's,

You've heard of William Shakespeare, but what about his sister?2

In this famous and revolutionary book, Virginia Woolf creates a character, Shakespeare's sister, who is equally as talented as her immortalized brother.2

Yet, she is ultimately forgotten because she never had the means to express her creativity.

In order to enjoy freedom of expression, Virginia argues that a woman must have a fixed income and a room of one's ownβ€”the way any man would.

4. A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft

person, religion, profession, book, DOVER,

You could say that this is the book that started it all.

Published in 1792 by an independent woman and well-known writer (she was among the ranks of William Blake and Thomas Paine), calling A Vinidcation of the Rights of Woman anything other than revolutionary would be an insult.

Wollstonecraft argued that men only wanted women as slaves and play things, but that women could free themselves from objectification through education.
