2017 Feminist Reading Challenge

The blog Femvidual will be hosting a Feminist Reading Challenge, with the choice of either Levels or a Bingo card. I'll be choosing the first level, but based on how many of the books I read last year, I'll probably read more than that. I knowI've already read some books that fit the challenge.

The Feminist Reading Challenge is back and fashionably late for 2017! This reading challenge focuses on reading nonfiction and fiction that is about feminism, sexism, and gender.

I've added some fun new challenges to the 2017 version including levels and even a feminist reading Bingo card. The Bingo card will be optional but I do want you to choose a level which are based on female superheroes. 

The Levels are:

Batgirl 1 - 4 books read
Catwoman 5 - 9 books read
Poison Ivy 10 - 14 books
Harley Quinn 15 - 19 books
Storm 20 - 24 books
Supergirl 25 - 29 books
Wonder Woman 30+ books

My books:

  1. City of Women--David R. Gilliam
  2. Pink--Lili Wilkinson
  3. The Sky is Everywhere--Jandy Nelson
  4. One Thousand White Women--Jim Fergus
  5. Hope--Amanda Berry and Gina De Jesus
  6. Lady Susan--Jane Austen
  7. To All the Boys I've Loved Before--Jenny Han
  8. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks--Rebecca Skloot
  9. Quicksand--Nella Larsen
  10. Are You My Mother--Alison Bechtel
  11. The Blacker the Berry--Wallace Thurman
  12. Bitch--Elizabeth Wurtzel
  13. The Goose Girl--Shannon Hale
  14. The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo--Amy Schemer
  15. Wives and Daughters--Elizabeth Gaskell
