Happy Women's Day

Although there is not much time left for this reading challenge, I thought it would be nice to add it since today is Women's Day here in South Africa. This reading challenge has been running from November 2009 and ends in November 2010.

Interested in participating? Great! There are three levels you can choose as a reader:

  • Philogynist: read at least two books, including at least one nonfiction one.
  • Bluestocking: read at least five books, including at least two nonfiction ones.
  • Suffragette: read at least eight books, including at least three nonfiction ones.
For nonfiction, this would include books on feminism, history books focused on women, biographies of women, memoirs (or travelogues) by women, essays by women and cultural books focused on women (body image, motherhood, etc.). The topics I’ve listed aren’t mean to be exhaustive; if you come across a nonfiction book whose subject is female-related, it counts!

So since I have already read quite a few female oriented books, in November I will do the tally and say at which level I participated.
