International Women's Day celebrates all women's achievements - the personal, the political, the social and the economical ones. But more than celebrating, this date is a reminder that the fight for gender equality is still very much needed. The first celebration took place in New York, in 1909, and nowadays is celebrated annually on March 8.
I monthly host a read-along and Misogynation by Laura Bates was our September pick. I loved Everyday Sexism and Girl Up. I still recommend Everyday Sexism to everyone who’s trying to understand the true scale of gender inequality, misogyny and sexism. Girl Up is still that perfect to book to offer young women. And, now we have Misogynation.
