Girl Power Books!! (Women's History Month!)

For today's blog, I decided to talk about books, both fiction and nonfiction, that really represent girl power and women's rights. This is a really important cause to me! Please feel free to talk about the books you want to read or have read that represent the power of us ladies. So, let's get started! (these are books I haven't read)

1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Lizzie Bennett is a really strong character who sticks it to the man, so I really want to read about her.

2. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
I REALLY want to read about Anne Frank. I've read a ton of books about her, but I haven't read her diary. She was so courageous and sweet.

3. Esperanza Rising by Pan Munez Ryan
Esperanza reinvents herself and is very compassionate and brave in the story.

4. Shabanu: Daughter of the Wind by Suzanne Fisher Staples
This is a book about a girl living in Pakistan who must make a choice: freedom or family honor.

5. Girl Power: Young Women Speak Out by Hillary Carlip
Girls from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives write letters, poems, stories, and notes about their worries, hopes, dreams, and experiences.

6. Sold by Patricia McCormick
Lakshimi leaves her home in Nepal thinking she's going to work in the city as a maid. Instead, the thirteen year-old discovers she's been sold into India's sex slave trade.

7. The Women Who Raised Me by Victoria Rowell
Rowell writes about her time in the foster-care system and how she rose out of it.

8. The Rise of Enlightened Sexism by Susan J. Douglas
This book tells of how media and pop culture affects women today.

9. Growing Up With Girl Power by Rebecca C. Hains
The ultimate girl power guide.

10. Fight Like A Girl by Lisa Bevere
How should a woman define herself?

Thank you SO much for reading! There will be a post about YA Fiction girl power books coming up soon, so stay tuned for that, and don't forget to enter my giveaway on YouTube!! Bye!
