wanted to see if you might be
able to send me a list of essential
feminist classics and current
works that you feel are necessary
to the cannon. I have recently
become very interested in the
issues of the movement as a
whole, but do not know where
to begin in such a broad scope
of resources. I have read works
by Gloria Steinem, Andrea Dworkin,
Betty Friedan and various commentaries
on pornography and domestic
violence. In order to expand
my vision in this subject, what
would you recommend? Thank you
for your time, Brooke
for your note to Feminist.com--and for your interest in devouring
the feminist classics. There
is a bookstore
at Feminist.com, which lists some of these books as
recommended by friends of the
site--here you will find great
things. A few of my favorites:
Steinem's "Outrageous Acts And
--Andrea Dworkin's "Intercourse."
--Shulamith Firestone's "The
Dialectics of Sex."
--bell hook's "Ain't I Am A
--Patricia Bell Scott, Barbara
Smith, Gloria Hull co-edited
"All of the Women are White,
All the Men are Black, But Some
of Us Are Brave."
--Carolyn Heilbrun's "Writing
A Woman's Life."
--For domestic violence--Gavin
DeBecker's--"The Gift of Fear."
--For pornography--besides some
of the above, which covers it--there
are a few Books by Diana Russell
and Laura Lederer's anthology--"Take
Back the Night."
