I'm going to spend this forthcoming year aiming to exclusively read works only by women and predominately about women. This is based on the attitude of Sheila Jeffreys who says she has read mostly women based works for the past 30 pus years.

What would people add to my list so far? I'm aiming for minimum one key text or classic per month plus my normal audiobooks and any additional books i pick up.

I want a list to keep me focused. i love starting books but don't always finish them. This year I'm getting finished! :D

I would recommend “only words” by Catherine Mackinnon, “our bodies their battlefields” by Christina Lamb, “the dialectic of sex” by Firestone, and “the female eunuch” by Germaine Greer.

I might have to plan a two year reading list as these are classics too! 😄👍
