I AM MALALA by Malala Yousafzai
Inspiring would be an understatement. Every page, every sentence, every word reeks of a young, brave girl’s battle for her right to education. Be is getting shot between her eyes or turning the entire society upside down, Malala has redefined the way women empowerment is looked at nowadays. We wish and hope for a day where every girl born in this world is as strong and heroic as she is. More power to you, Malala!
GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso
Yes, this book seems to be as overexposed as a Kardashian drama, but rightfully so. It was fascinating to hear Sophia’s journey and her snark, realness, and personality jumped off the page with every word. #GIRLBOSS proves that being successful isn’t about where you went to college or how popular you were in high school. It’s about trusting your instincts and following your gut; knowing which rules to follow and which to break; when to button up and when to let your freak flag fly.
LEAN IN by Sheryl Sandberg
Lean In was one of the most widely read, widely praised, and widely criticized books of 2013. Many women found deep inspiration in Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s message to working women, that encouraged them to find new ways to dig their heels in at work, as they become mothers, encounter professional obstacles, or are pushed out. At the same time, other women found the book to be limited in scope, overlooking the ways that many poor and working-class women already “lean in,” in the face of hostile work environments, without partners, and without the resources of white-collar employees. Still, the book reignited an ongoing conversation that is worth engaging in: What does work look like for women today, and what do they need to be supported and support themselves.
A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS by Khaled Hosseini
In the world of catfights and women degrading each other, the story about strength and endurance of the two female characters is unbelievable. It’s also amazing because it depicts a fierce and unbreakable friendship between two women’s journey.
