Books to Resist With

I am not a politically neutral blogger. And I'm not sorry about that.

So, on the day of the inauguration, one of my methods of resistance was to make a thread of books on twitter that were feminist and had good encouragement to resist. And I figured I could put it all in one place for myself and for others.

  1. Thank you for pulling this list together! I'm going to be trying to use the #readandresist hashtag to try to find more great books. Reading (and buying diverse books) feels like a way to resist and I'm glad to see others also doing it.
