The Ultimate Feminist Reading List

Women's Crisis Care International is lucky to have over 100 compassionate volunteers working around the clock to help women. These hilarious, kind, diverse, bad-ass women come from different backgrounds and speak many langauges between them but all have two things in common -  they all love toppling the patriarchy and reading a good book! Who doesn't?

So with that in mind, our volunteers have come together to share their favourite feminist literature and created the ultimate feminist reading list.. for you!!
