Moving Beyond Words: Essays on Age, Rage, Sex, Power, Money, Muscles: Breaking the Boundaries of Gender by Gloria Steinem

Review: Given the extensive history of Gloria Steinem and feminism and how renowned her work is, you kinda have to go in knowing that it’s going to be fantastic. Even if I had my doubts, they were assauged by my first foray into Steinem’s work when I read Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions about two years ago. She mentions in the introduction to the book that she … Continue reading Moving Beyond Words: Essays on Age, Rage, Sex, Power, Money, Muscles: Breaking the Boundaries of Gender by Gloria Steinem

Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World’s Most Famous Heroine by Tim Hanley

It dives deeper into the way that Wonder Woman has been received by the masses and … Continue reading Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World’s Most Famous Heroine by Tim Hanley

Beginning Women of the Revolution: Forty Years of Feminism, no really this time

I’ve had this book listed on my “Currently Reading” list for a while on both Goodreads and BookLikes but I wasn’t actually reading it.

I let it stagnate in … Continue reading Beginning Women of the Revolution: Forty Years of Feminism, no really this time
