Want to get caught up on some feminist theory and history over the summer? (“Yes, Erin, of COURSE I want to spend my summer vacation voluntarily saturating my psyche with the systematic oppression and sexual violence of kyriarchical cultures. Duh.”) Well, in case you’re my kind of masochist, here’s a decent reading list of texts to keep your brain occupied while you sit on the beach/Metro. There’s not too much queer stuff in here ( Lame. I’d supplement this list with some Halberstam, Baldwin, and Lorde at the very least), but a lot of these seem pretty accessible in a non I-have-to-read-this-for-my-women’s-studies-seminar kind of way.
Here’s a sampling of the list:
Women of Color:
Ain’t I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism – Bell Hooks
Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism – Daisy Hernadez
Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black – Bell Hooks
Undivided Rights: Women of Color Organize for Reproductive Justice – Jael Silliman
Virginity or Death – Katha Pollitt
Words of Fire: An Anthology of African American Feminist Thought – Beverly Guy-Sheftall
Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power & A World Without Rape – Jaclyn Friedman
