Readings On Feminist Literature — In Continuation With #HeForShe

HeForShe | The Black Lion Journal


In #HeForShe’s Powerhouse Movement: A Brief Account Of Its Inspiration & Influence, I wrote about HeForShe’s gender equality and women’s empowerment movement. I also wrote down a few names of feminist literature writers for further reading.

Below are two pictures of the readings I had for my Gender, Rhetoric, and Body course that I took during my graduate school. My professor, Dr. Suzanne Bordelon, put together this list of readings, and is, therefore, credited for the pictures of the syllabus. In all honesty, this class was the most fun I had in learning about women’s rights and the feminist movement. I have learned more, of course, after taking this course — and those readings I will add here too. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to leave a comment. You know what to do.
