reading through “The Books that changed our lives”, i came upon this perfect description (lots of other great comments from some awesome feminists in the article):
“feminism isn’t an argument or a position but a kind of sanity … a way of looking at the world that takes the humanity of female people seriously” – ariel levy [some discussion of levy’s most famous book mentioned in an older post here].
a bit about the books that changed my life here. to which i’d add this about bell hooks, this about gloria anzaldua, this on jane eyre and this on fiul risipitor. and a feminist reading list i made a while ago here.
