“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.”
Shamsha HashwaniA Mughal Mirage Bridals F/W 2016 Shamsha Hashwani takes us back to the Mughal era with a collection paying homage to the time where grandeur and opulence reigned supreme. Ivory and shades of red and coral dominated this collection, embellished with zardozi, resham, and marori kaam. Keeping in line with the traditional motifs, silhouettes throughout this collection included ghararas, lehngas and angarkhas. The addition of contemporary pieces into this collection pulled this collection together, creating a magnificent masterpiece.
