Girl, Woman, Other

Title: Girl, Woman, Other

Authors: Bernardine Evaristo

Why this book: 

Book Cover for "Girl, Woman, Other"

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?
