Moon In Bastet by E.S. Danon

This product was recommended by Meaghan Hurn from Hurn Publications

Filled with mystery, magic and symbolism – Moon In Bastet is a story of resilience, survivorship, forgiveness, and women empowerment. E.S. Danon brings to light the rampant sexism within her religion and uses magical-realism to show her process of fighting against it. Magical, harrowing, and eye-opening. The voice women around the world need right now who have been persecuted by their own religions. – Women of the Wall

Pleasure Activism by adrienne maree brown

This product was recommended by Anne M. Lauren from AnneMLauren

In Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good, adrienne maree brown calls her readers to experience social justice activism as a source of pleasure as opposed to another responsibility for reform.

Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall

This product was recommended by Anne M. Lauren from AnneMLauren

Mikki Kendall, in her work, Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot, challenges mainstream feminist priorities that have historically focused on white women’s access to the workplace, equitable pay, and pro-choice principles, by expanding feminist initiatives to meet the basic needs of safe home environments, food security, racial equality, and access to medical care.

Bad Feminist by Roxane gay

This product was recommended by Muhammad Mateen Khan from PureVPN

Roxane Gay’s hilarious collection of essays, Bad Feminist, details her life as a feminist who also happens to love certain things that aren’t necessarily cause-friendly. It’s a reminder that at the heart of all of us is a woman looking to define herself — and that the word feminist can have many definitions — it doesn’t always have to mean marching with picket signs.

When and Where I Enter by Paula J Giddings

This product was recommended by Dana Kirkegaard from Friends of UNFPA

When and Where I Enter is a transformational read by Paula Giddings, a personal friend of the late, great Toni Morrison and the Elizabeth A. Woodson Professor Emerita of Africana Studies at Smith College. Her work explores critical and often unrecognized roles Black women have played in American history, from 1619 to now. It explains how Black women have been subjected to all sorts of abuse and oppression through America’s racist systems and how throughout it, they have still supported the country we all call home. If you’re looking to expand your understanding of American history through the eyes of Black women and to have your perspective completely changed, read When and Where I Enter.
