Three non-fiction feminist books to empower you this summer

Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez

Why are smartphones designed to be one-size-fits-all? Why are medical experiments based on a default of men? Even government policy and the workplace overlook women. In this eye-opening and thought-provoking book, Perez uses evidence and statistics to expose how the world is designed around men.

This book will change the way you view the world. In an age of technology and data, this book has never been more relevant.

A Woman of Firsts by Edna Adan Ismail

This book would be very suited to someone who wants to read a book about female empowerment, or is interested in medical memoirs, female genital mutilation, or international development.

Her story is inspiring as a strong-willed woman who relentlessly pursues what she wants, fighting against societal norms and the many barriers in her way. She protects women against a system designed against them, fighting against the practice of female genital mutilation. Additionally, this is a story of caring for others with compassion and kindness, a true story of humanity.

We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World by Malala Yousafzai

In her fight to protect girls’ education, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai shares her own story of being an Internally Displaced Person and losing the world she was familiar with. She meets girls on her journeys through refugee camps who have also been displaced by war.

This book is unique in its focus on the female experience, whose voices are often lost or concealed as part of the refugee experience. By sharing their stories, Malala has created a very personal and powerful collection of refugee experiences from a female perspective.
