Full Version: A Good Book To Introduce Someone To Feminism?
The BUST Lounge > Forums > The F-Word
does anyone have any recommendations?

i have a female friend, 22, who has never really been introduced to the basic concepts of feminism. she's an amazing girl, and i'd love to give her a book that's an easy introduction. nothing overly intellectual, but still smart and interesting to music obsessed girl from the south who's never really thought about sexism.

i was thinking maybe "feminism is for everybody" by bell hooks. thoughts?

(p.s. i'm new so sorry if this has come up. i search past posts but didn't find anything.)

That's the exact book I thought of when I saw your post. Very accessible, not intimidatingly *thick*, and hooks is so balanced.
