Across the country, we're seeing a new wave of extreme bans on abortion, stripping away reproductive freedom and representing an all-out assault on abortion access. At the Feminist Press, we believe books foster empathy, change culture, and provide us with words when we are speechless. Here's what we're reading today:
Sarah Weddington’s powerful memoir A Question of Choice explores how a twenty-seven-year-old lawyer won Roe v. Wade.
Rooted in Black feminism and built on intersecting identities, Radical Reproductive Justice asserts a woman's right to have children, to not have children, and to parent and provide for the children they have. Edited by Loretta J. Ross, Lynn Roberts, Erika Derkas, Whitney Peoples, and Pamela Bridgewater Toure.
More than fifty powerful feminist voices imagine the world we could build together in The Feminist Utopia Project. Both visionary and touching, this exciting collection includes pieces from Lori Adelman on sex, Melissa Harris Perry on the promised land, Jill Soloway describing a hilarious woman-only commune, and Janet Mock envisioning a world so safe that true happiness is attainable. Edited by Alexandra Brodsky and Rachel Kauder Nalebuff.
Psst! While of course you can buy these books for yourself, you can also send this bundle to legislators or the President, or even request them at the library for your local community.
