7 Feminist Books To Read

I am a feminist. I believe in the equal gender rights. I believe in the rights of women to choose and dictate their own decisions over their bodies any way they see fit. Do I like men? Yes I do. Do I like to wear dresses and be “feminine”? Yes I do. I enjoy being a woman. We’ve come a long way but there’s still a long way to go.
