Feminism for All Women
by Alana LaBeaf
This week I’m focusing on an underused area of the library: books about U.S. women’s history. Since I spend a fair amount of my time reading reviews for adult nonfiction books, I want to highlight some interesting titles on this subject that were published over the last few years, and which were favorably reviewed.
An unfortunate common thread between different waves of feminism has been an almost willful ignorance of the experiences of women of color. Recent years have seen multiple books that offer an intersectional approach.
