Oprah's book club has declared The Feminist Revolution a must-read for Women's History Month. The Feminist Revolution offers an overview of women's struggle for equal rights in the late twentieth century. Beginning with the auspicious founding of the National Organization for Women in 1966, at a time when women across the world were mobilizing individually and collectively in the fight to assert their independence and establish their rights in society, the book traces a path through political campaigns, protests, the formation of women's publishing houses and groundbreaking magazines, and other events that shaped women's history. It examines women's determination to free themselves from definition by male culture, wanting not only to 'take back the night' but also to reclaim their bodies, their minds, and their cultural identity. It demonstrates as well that the feminist revolution was enacted by women from all backgrounds, of every color, and of all ages and that it took place in the home, in workplaces, and on the streets of every major town and city. This sweeping overview of the key decades in the feminist revolution also brings together for the first time many of these women's own unpublished stories, which together offer tribute to the daring, humor, and creative spirit of its participants.

Men are not the enemy, but they are the problem. Women are wildly underrepresented at every level of the US government: federal, state, and local. Research has shown that women in legislative and executive political positions are far more likely than men to commit to policies that benefit women and girls of all kinds, so after centuries of underrepresentation, it’s clear: our best bet for creating a system that is more fair, balanced, and just for everyone is electing our first Madam President. Donald Trump’s election didn’t mean defeat, and his policies targeting women have not silenced them. Instead, women across the country have been motivated to speak out louder than ever before. There is no more powerful example of this than the Women’s March of 2017—held just one day after Trump’s inauguration—which was a worldwide catalyst for ongoing change and a vehicle for systemic empowerment that hasn’t stopped since. Vote Her In is organized around the inspirational messages seen in protest signs carried at those record-breaking marches. Part One outlines the case for why we need to mobilize now, and Part Two provides a clear strategy for how to get there, with 13 tractable actions that women from all backgrounds can take to help get each other (or themselves) into executive political offices and work toward electing our first woman president in 2020. In Vote Her In, author Rebecca Sive has leveraged her decades of political experience to give practical guidance, not just to women seeking political office themselves, but to all women—regardless of their prior exposure to political outreach and activism—who have come together to take action in the wake of Trump’s election. This crucial book empowers every American man, woman, and girl who cares about our nation’s democratic future to join forces and harness their collective power in the run-up to 2020 and, at last, to form a more perfect union. It’s easy to feel angry, but much harder to do something about it. Sive shows us how.

A feminist silkscreen poster collective founded in London in 1974 by three former art students, the See Red Women's Workshop grew out of a shared desire to combat sexist images of women and to create positive and challenging alternatives. Women from different backgrounds came together to make posters and calendars that tackled issues of sexuality, identity and oppression. With humor and bold, colorful graphics, See Red expressed the personal experiences of women as well as their role in wider struggles for change.
