On the Shelf

Happy Bookday fems!!

Hope you have all been able to get your head into a weighty tome today (or at least a spot of bedtime reading on the cards!)

Ever since the age of four, I have constantly had my head in a book (and on occasion several at once-obviously not literally- my head’s not that big!)

So, I was majorly excited today to discover that my copy of “A Woman’s Work” by Harriet Harman had been reserved and ready for collection at Broomhill Library!

Prologue read already and it’s proving to be a fascinating insight into one woman’s quest to break into the male dominated political arena.

So in traditional style here are a few feminist suggestions:

“Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman” by Catherine Meyer of WEP

“Hidden Figures” by Margot Lee Shetterly

“The Beauty Myth” by Naomi Wolf

“On the Road”  by Gloria Steinem

And not traditionally feminist but definitely well worth a read “Walk  through walls” by performance artist Marina Abramovic
