Reading Women Challenge 2021

 Doing this one again.

Here’s the rundown: complete as many challenges as you can from the list below. If you have one book that covers two categories (or more!), feel free to count it for both. It's not a contest. Our goal is to encourage you to read widely (and fight the patriarchy, but that was probably a given), so just have fun with it!

This year, we’re focusing on reading international authors (authors from countries other than your own). We’re also encouraging participants to read books by trans women and people of other marginalized genders who are comfortable being included in feminine-coded initiatives.
