Happy Wednesday, Savvy Readers!
Got those post-Valentine’s Day blues? I have just the thing. Having been a long-time fan and enthusiast of feminist literature, I’ve gathered some of my favourite feminist book quotes for your #WednesdayWisdom!
Hello there, Savvy Readers!
If you haven’t been keeping up with your book news, HarperCollins Canada recently hosted a campaign called Women’s Voices, meant to share and bring new attention to many important works by many badass women speaking on many issues that women face. It had opened my eyes to many new authors and issues that I hadn’t even considered before, and it has inspired me to try new and exciting feminist books.
When Feminist Fight Club landed in my hands, I was immediately interested. Right off the bat, it was clear that this was going to be a totally bold and unapologetic read, and I couldn’t wait to dive in. It largely deals with the way that women face sexism in the workplace. It’s described as “part manual, part manifesto.” And I can honestly say that I took SO MUCH away from reading this book.
I’m really excited to be posting on The Savvy Reader today to share with you the launch of Women’s Voices; a campaign to support feminist conversations with important stories authored by intelligent and empowered women. A campaign to showcase our badass authors who have charged through life and dealt head on with challenges that are attached to the female experience. Authors who have shared the hardships and successes of their lives with us so that we may find the support and strength we need when we face our own challenges of sexism, harassment, objectification and violence. As it is now August, students are going to start preparing to go back to school, making it a vital time for us to have these conversations about sexual assault on university and college campuses in Canada.
