'Are you well versed in the F word? If not, this is an amazing place to start!'

Zoey is correct about her wonderfully curated list. Feminism is an ever-expanding field of research, open dialogue and accessible to both men and women - young or old. You may often want to increase your own personal knowledge on the topic but not know where is best to start. Would personal essays work? Or how about a TED talk? 

Thanks to Zoey Phoon's excellent list of easy to pick-up-and-go feminist books, you can certainly find something to quench that thirst. From great minds such as Hillary R Clinton and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, this list is comprehensive and diverse. What's more, all of these books are easy to purchase online from Amazon & eBay!

'Feminism has always had negative connotations of angry, men-hating women but it's actually quite the opposite. Here are 10 recommendations of insightful feminist books that can help articulate what it truly means to be a feminist and how rewarding it is to fight for gender equality.'
