The New Women's Movement

An information hub for feminists prioritizing intersectionality and inclusion.

bookriot:

Get ready for your TBR to explode. Here’s a nice, thick list of LGBTQ reading for any occasion.
I have a request for the mods and followers of this blog: Can anyone recommend any good books to introduce feminism for kids? I can only think of a few examples (The Paper Bag Princess, the Chronicles of Narnia series, and Junie B. Jones series).
A:

Definitely!

I can only remember reading a few growing up: Alice in Wonderland, Matilda, Madeline, Harriet the Spy.

Fortunately, there are many more these days, and I’ve found several resources with suggestions:

Hope this helps! :)
