This is my acceptance post to be a Suffragette.
Being a Women Studies major, resistance against this challenge is futile.
Participants are encouraged to read nonfiction and fiction books related to the rather broad idea of ‘women’s studies.’
There are three levels you can choose as a reader (you can count books for other challenges as well):
Philogynist: read at least two books, including at least one nonfiction one.
Bluestocking: read at least five books, including at least two nonfiction ones.
Suffragette: read at least eight books, including at least three nonfiction ones.
Below is my tentative book list. It's a mix of YA, Japanese, art history and spirituality.
I will include review links on this page as posts are created. This list will inevitably increase in size. So you'll see extra goodies as time goes on.
As an added challenge to myself, I will also add movie-related review links here.
