10 feminist books to read after you've gotten through the classics
The feminist canon gets an intersectional update.
By SaVonne Anderson

“Literature has always been the foundation of the feminist movement. Since the 18th century, when Mary Wollstonecraft wrote A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, women have used print to spread knowledge and awareness, and promote feminist ideas.

Although feminist literature has been around for hundreds of years, we tend to stick to an unofficial canon of a few classics. But to promote progress and intersectionality, we should expand our feminist library to include more contemporary works, too.

In addition to being relevant to the times, today’s feminist literature often features more diverse authors and perspectives, representing the many voices of the feminist movement at large.

These 10 books do just that. And while they may not be classics yet, they’re well worth a read if you’re interested in expanding your knowledge of feminism.”
