February was a weird month reading wise; I started off well and then hit a wall toward the end of the month. This was partly due to a bout of physical exhaustion and partly because I was struggling with The Chosen Ones* by Steve Sem-Sandberg, a book I have decided not to finish.
You may spot a theme or two in my February reads, I seem to be having a moment with feminist non-fiction and mystery/thrillers.
All The Rebel Women by Kira Cochrane
All The Rebel Women: The Rise of the Fourth Wave of Feminism provides an overview of fourth wave feminism and how it came to be. In just over 70 pages, Kira Cochrane discusses some feminist history, rape culture, online feminism and the importance of intersectionality.
While a lot of the information and statistics are UK specific, it is still an excellent introduction to contemporary feminism. A must read for those who are looking to explore feminism, but aren’t sure where to begin.
