Title: Girl, Woman, Other
Authors: Bernardine Evaristo
Why this book:
This book follows the lives of 12 characters – most of them being Black British women, each with their own chapter.
This book is a useful resource to understand the concept of intersectionality in real-life settings. The characters are real, human, and have complex identities that often overlap – expect to read about race, class, gender, age, faith, and sexual orientation.
There is one clear message that echoes throughout the book: there is no wrong way to be a woman.
With March being International Women’s Month, what better book is there to suggest?
