After looking over the book list for my english
class this year, I realized that the only woman
author we're going to discuss is Emily Dickinson.
While I respect her work and place in history,
I find it absurd that my school feels she has
been the only influential woman author.
I want to do something about it, but first I'm
trying to think of as many titles of books written
by women that we could go over in class.
Any ideas would be very much appreciated.
are right to be outraged that there is only one
woman listed in your reading list. There are so
many great female novelists/essaysists -- here's
a few to start with:
The Bronte Sisters
Zora Neale Hurston
There's a start -- and see Feminist.com's recommended
reading list for more.
