Since the 1700s to the present day, there has been a steady and healthy amount of literary works that deal with feminism in one way or another. These works include fiction, theory, and criticism. It’s almost like having a sister when you read an awe-inspiring memoir written by a powerful and successful woman, and she spends a hundred or so pages talking about the times when she wasn’t so smart and classy. It’s good to learn humility by reading about people who we didn’t think could have bad days. This can make you think of your own life in the same way as the ones on the front pages of the newspaper.
When you read about how someone you admire was able to turn things around even in the darkest of times, it can be very motivating. It may be a common thing for women to reach a low point in their lives and feel completely alone, wishing there was someone there who could have helped them make better decisions and live more mindfully. But don’t worry, we can be that person for you. As every woman knows, it’s hard to connect with your life and feel like every day is a struggle. These powerful women are no exception. When you hear big names like Michelle Obama or Toni Morrison say that they, too, feel like the world is out to get them when they wake up, you feel less alone in your own struggles. This makes you less alone. Thank goodness there are now many books written by women that will boost your morale. People who are successful in their careers, have a hangover cure from a broken heart, or just want to be like them can help you. There is a lot of empathetic wisdom in these books, with a kind of delicacy that only women can truly show off. They also have a lot of wisdom that you can keep with you for a long time. These are some of the best books for women that we think will help you get out there and start living the life you want. They were written by women from all walks of life and all ages. They cover a wide range of topics, from finances to female empowerment, so it doesn’t matter if you want to learn more about the history of the women’s movement or if you’re more interested in modern-day feminists.
Becoming by Michelle Obama
It’s hard to think of the former First Lady of the United States as someone who has thoughts like the rest of us. Michelle Obama’s memoir is filled to the brim with intimate details about what made her one of the most respected women in the modern world. Through this book, you can learn about her childhood in Chicago, her college years at Princeton and Harvard, her work as an attorney, her family, and so many other things. She is not only a political figure in this story, but a woman who has a lot of different roles and a lot of depth inside of her. It’s impossible to limit her to just one.
For more than anything else, her book was one of inclusion and advocacy on the part of women. As a person of color and a woman, it was interesting to read about how America’s first Black First Lady was able to deal with all of the things that were going against her. It can help any woman learn how to build up their strength and drive, and how that will help them when the time comes.
The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates
Melinda Gates is also a philanthropist, a businesswoman, and a global advocate for women around the world. She is best known for her husband’s invention that changed the way we use technology. Her name is Melinda Gates. She is the co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and she also started a company called “Pivotal Ventures,” which focuses on investing in women and families in the US.
In her book, she goes on to share important life lessons from the many roles she plays and the people she’s met over time because of her job and her travels around the world. In the beginning, she says, “I want all of us to see how we can help women where we live.” At the same time, Gates introduces the reader to amazing women and shows how important it is to be connected. In this book, she has immortalized the idea that “empowered women help other empowered women.” A quote from The Moment of Lift that many people remember is: “If you want to lift a society up, stop keeping women down.”
Secrets of Six-Figure Women by Barbara Stanny
This is Barbara Stanny’s sixth financial book. She’s been writing about women and money and power for a long time now. Her work has been going on for 20 years and counting, and it has made a big difference in how women think about money and how they spend their money. Women should take care of their mental and physical wealth so that they can live the life they want, she says. She is an author, a life coach, a motivational speaker, and a workshop facilitator.
When Barbara Stanny wrote Secrets of Six-Figure Women, she did a lot of research and talked to a lot of people, including more than 150 women who make between $100,000 and $7 million a year. She came up with the seven most important strategies for women who make a lot of money. Every woman can make the money they want if they follow Stanny’s step-by-step plan. She completely changes the way women think about their hard-earned money. Instead of being afraid to spend big because they don’t want to be called “bashful,” she tells them to be proud of their work and enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit
Rebecca Solnit is known for popularizing the term “mansplaining.” In her collection of personal and intimate essays, she talks about modern feminism in a variety of ways. There is some humor in all of her non-saccharine essays, but they are always clear and direct. Solnit’s pieces show how gender has changed in the last few years. They show things like having your own interests explained to you and the #YesAllWomen movement. They also show how marriage equality has changed.
The book’s essays cover a wide range of topics, from the silly (like “mansplaining”) to the important (like how to be a good friend) (gender equality). In Men Explain Things to Me, Solnit has some very strong opinions about feminism, marriage equality, and our society. They are also sometimes very important.
In the Land of Invisible Women by Dr. Qanta A. Ahmed
To read In the Land of Invisible Women is to follow the real-life story of Quanta Ahmed, the author. She tells how she was a British doctor of Pakistani descent who took a job in Saudi Arabia when her visa for the United States expired. The highs and lows of her life are mixed together in her autobiography. For example, Ahmed found out about Islam during a spiritual pilgrimage, and some of her coworkers celebrated the 9/11 attacks in the US.
Things aren’t always black and white, Ahmed learns during her two-year stay in Riyadh. But sometimes you just have to look for the silver lining. This book was very interesting because it looked at how women deal with trauma and how strong they are when they get through it.
We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
We Should All Be Feminists is a New York Times bestseller by Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. In the book, she talks about her own definition of feminism in the midst of all the debates about the movement and which idealism is right. She talks about what it means to be a post-modern woman and a feminist in a world where people are very sensitive and “cancel culture” is very common on social media.
There have been more than six million views of her TEDx talk, which she wrote about. Her book is based on that. This is what she talks about in both her popular video and her book. She talks about how 21st-century feminism can be more inclusive, not just white feminism, which is the more popular and accepted trend now. Adichie, because she is a person of color, has a unique and important voice that isn’t often heard in feminist places.
Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes
It’s possible that you know her as the person who made a lot of popular shows, like Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal. Even though she’s very high in the totem pole, she has to deal with a lot of problems at work. Because she was in a safe place, Shonda Rhimes didn’t want to try anything new. She didn’t want to get out of her comfort zone.
Then, when Rhimes’ sister told her that she didn’t go outside her comfort zone anymore, Rhimes knew that something had to change. For the next year, she would do anything that scared her. A book she wrote about herself makes her seem like any other woman who works. She’s afraid of public speaking and being too comfortable. She tells you how to get away from the normal hum and drum of your life and how to live each day a little more excited than the last.
Everyday Sexism by Laura Bates
When Laura Bates started her “Everyday Sexism Project” in 2012, it was a big deal. Laura Bates is very clever when she talks about how common subtle microaggressions aimed at women are in our daily lives, from the simple whistle when you pass a group of men to more direct discriminatory actions in the office. This book talks about the things that happen every day but are quickly forgotten because they are so small and normal.
Most women are subjected to sexism and harassment on a daily basis, but most people don’t pay attention to them. Laura Bates, a writer, came up with the Everyday Sexism Project to give women a way to speak up. What started out as a website where women could talk about their experiences every day has grown into a movement that has more credibility and started conversations about these small things that happen every day.
The Source of Self-Regard by Toni Morrison
Toni Morrison is one of the most important writers of the 20th century, and she wrote a lot of books. You can read her own words in this book, which is a collection of essays and speeches she has given over 50 years in the public eye. You will be inspired by all of the wisdom she has shared with the world. I think Morrison is a genius. When I read words from her speeches, meditations, and essays, I feel like I’m getting a peek inside of her head.
Here is Toni Morrison in her own words: a collection of her most important essays and speeches that spans four decades, all of which she has written or given. It shows how people of color, especially women, deal with oppression through the lens of society, culture, and art, and it is very interesting.
