To do this we have to understand women and their world… Sreemoyee Piu Kundu gives us a list of essential reading which every woman must have on her shelf…
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
The book examines mental illness. Cynicism. Expectations and failure and is considered largely autobiographical.
The Delta of Venus: Erotica by Anais Nin
A collection of 15 short stories, this is considered a pioneering work of sexual identity by sex positive feminists.
Revolution from Within by Gloria Steinem
A self-help book that turns feminism inward. Funny. Moving. Brave. And tender.
The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf
A compelling look at the invasive scrutiny of the beauty industry. A scathing critique of the fashion and beauty industry.
Letter to my Daughter by Maya Angelou
She had no daughters, but Maya Angelou’s book of essays is as personal as it is political.
