My mother, whom I love and who is awesome in many ways, knows I’ve been reading a lot of feminist theory. She took some old books a male sociology professor colleague was getting rid of, and gave me the ones she decided were somehow related to feminism.
These are the books by mom thought her feminist daughter might enjoy:
A Group Called Women: Sisterhood and Symbolism in the Feminist Movement by Joan Cassell
Ok, probably not going to read it, footnotes show more than half the authors cited are male, but yes, feminist book, success.
You Just Don’t Understand: Women and Men in Conversation by Deborah Tannen, Ph.D.
See, women like to talk about feelings, and men don’t. It’s almost like we’re from different planets or something! Someone should write a book about that.
Callgirl by Jeanette Angell
Some kind of semi-autographical and super sexxxy story of a woman’s fabulous and sexxxy adventures in prostitution. I’m getting liberated just thinking about it!
