Bravo Emma Watson – We Should All Be Feminists

Bravo and well done Emma Watson for starting the Feminist Book Club Our Shared Shelf – what a fantastic idea. As both a woman and mother (including step-mother) of daughters and sons I feel very strongly about women’s rights and society’s attitude towards women in general. My wish for my children is that they never feel restricted or limit their choices in life because of their gender – male or female.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that I am very busy writing the sequel to my debut novel – 183 TIMES A YEAR – I will not have the time to partake in this brilliant reading challenge. However, I will be taking a look from time to time and try to read at least a couple of the books selected to be read and reviewed during 2016.

In the meantime, if you have children entering their formative years or are just beginning your reading journey about feminism, I highly recommend We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It is a very short; easy read that shines a light on both blatant discrimination and the more insidious institutional behaviours that marginalise women.
