Women Unbound Challenge

I realize that I have less will power than some other people, but there are some challenges that I really, really cannot say no to. The Women Unbound Challenge, co-hosted by Aarti, Care, and Eva,is all about reading books related to women's studies - non-fiction about women and related fiction all qualify. There are three levels you can choose as a reader:
  • Philogynist: read at least two books, including at least one nonfiction one.
  • Bluestocking: read at least five books, including at least two nonfiction ones.
  • Suffragette: read at least eight books, including at least three nonfiction ones.
I'm going to be brave and ambitious and go for the Sufragette level - but I do reserve the right to change my mind! Some options are below and I'm sure more will be added as we go along.

The challenge runs from November 2009 to November 2010.

Completed: 4/8 as of 7 September 2010

Fiction (1/5):

Non-Fiction (0/3):

What an excellent list! The ones I read were great, the sounds I didn't sound very appealing. I need to get my hands on The Mommy Myth!

Aren't these lists fun? I see some new ones and some classics. I've read quite a few of these - hope you enjoy them; thanks for participating.

Nymeth - Thanks, glad you like it. Will let you know about the Mommy Myth, hope to get to it soon, definitely before the baby arrives! :-)

bkclubcare - yup, the lists ARE fun!! :-)

Love your list! Just FYI, Wild Swans is nonfiction (it's a memoir). :)

Hi Eva, thanks for that, I was wondering, I'd seen it listed as both!
