2015 Feminism Reading Challenge

January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015

A while back I created a Feminism Suggested Reading List. I want to spend 2015 reading as many books on feminism as I can. I decided to create a reading challenge for this goal and invite others to participate.

My purpose for this challenge is to educate myself about the history of feminism, significant people in the movement, and to learn the different schools of feminist thought.

However, this is a design it yourself challenge. I want you to choose your own reading goals. They may be be different from mine. Perhaps you will want to focus on reproductive rights, on just third wave feminism, or just on female fictional authors. The choice is yours.

The Rules:
This challenge begins January 1, 2015 and ends Dec 31, 2015.

You may sign up anytime during the year.

I won't be creating different levels. Read as little or as many books as you want.

You may include books of any format including traditional books, ebooks, or audiobooks.

Books may be YA, adult, fiction, or nonfiction. You will find a suggested reading list here. Books do not have to come from this list but they must focus on feminist issues and themes.

You may reread books.

Books may count towards other reading challenges.
