1- Material Girl, Mystical World: The Now Age Guide to a High-Vibe Life

Author: Ruby Warrington

Book introduction:

“What do you do when you get to the apex of your career, and instead of living your best life, you feel unsatisfied and stuck, or perhaps even depressed? It might be time to make mindfulness a major priority. The book Material Girl, Mystical World expounds on author Ruby Warrington’s transformation from fashion journalist to modern-spirituality guru, and details the steps she took along the way to lead a more awakened life.

It’s a perfect intro to anyone who’s ever been curious about how an alternative spiritual practice can help you regain your footing in a world that seems totally out of control.”

2- Lift Like a Girl: Be More, Not Less

Author: Nia Shanks

Book introduction:

“We’re in the midst of a fitness revolution. It’s no longer about “beach bodies” and “thigh gaps” and all of the toxic messages that women have been fed about staying thin and trim at all costs. Fitness coach Nia Shanks believes that fitness should always be fun and personally fulfilling. This new book breaks down her practical, accessible approach to diet and exercise and, most importantly, enjoying the entire journey!”

3- Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches

Author: Audre Lorde

Book introduction:

“A collection of fifteen essays written between 1976 and 1984 gives clear voice to Audre Lorde’s literary and philosophical personae. These essays explore and illuminate the roots of Lorde’s intellectual development and her deep-seated and longstanding concerns about ways of increasing empowerment among minority women writers and the absolute necessity to explicate the concept of difference—difference according to sex, race, and economic status. The title Sister Outsider finds its source in her poetry collection The Black Unicorn (1978). These poems and the essays in Sister Outsider stress Lorde’s oft-stated theme of continuity, particularly of the geographical and intellectual link between Dahomey, Africa, and her emerging self.”

4- The color purple

Author: Alice Walker

Book Introduction:

“The Color Purple is a classic. With over a million copies sold in the UK alone, it is hailed as one of the all-time ‘greats’ of literature, inspiring generations of readers.

Set in the deep American South between the wars, it is the tale of Celie, a young black girl born into poverty and segregation. Raped repeatedly by the man she calls ‘father’, she has two children taken away from her, is separated from her beloved sister Nettie and is trapped into an ugly marriage. But then she meets the glamorous Shug Avery, singer and magic-maker – a woman who has taken charge of her own destiny. Gradually, Celie discovers the power and joy of her own spirit, freeing her from her past and reuniting her with those she loves.”

5- Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela

Author: Reshma Saujani

Book introduction:

“Mandela’s story is an inspiration for anyone who cares about social justice and political change. His autobiography has been a huge influence on me in my work as an activist and founder of Girls Who Code. Mandela reminds us to fight for our values and what we know is right.”

6- The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Author: Emma Donoghue

Book introduction:

“Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is the most plausible feminist dystopia ever. From that moment when the heroine’s ATM card no longer works because women’s bank accounts have been frozen, to her struggles to escape from slavery as a breeder, this smart and page-turning novel reminds us to never let ourselves be defined by our ovaries.”

7- I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

Author: Maya Angelou

Book introduction:

“It’s brutal and beautiful in a way that only the great Dr. Maya Angelou can weave together words. Every woman should read this book, not because you can relate to the exact details, but you may certainly relate to wanting your voice heard even when other people and difficult circumstances try to silence you.”

8- Learned Optimism

Author: Martin Seligman

Book introduction:

Reading Learned Optimism changed my life and started me on the path to the confidence and resilience we need to succeed. Even though we have come a long way, women still get plenty of negative messages from our environment. We certainly don’t need to internalize and add to them in our own heads! It sounds like pop psychology, yet another self-help book, but Dr. Seligman pioneered an entire school of therapy that has helped millions. It is certainly not just for women, but all women should read it.”

9- Eat, Pray, Love

Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

Book introduction:

“An intensely articulate and moving memoir of self-discovery, Eat, Pray, Love is about what can happen when you claim responsibility for your own contentment and stop trying to live in imitation of society’s ideals. It is certain to touch anyone who has ever woken up to the unrelenting need for change.”

10- My Life on the Road

Author: Gloria Steinem

Book introduction:

“Gloria Steinem—writer, activist, organizer, and one of the most inspiring leaders in the world—now tells a story she has never told before, a candid account of how her early years led her to live an on-the-road kind of life, traveling, listening to people, learning, and creating change. She reveals the story of her own growth in tandem with the growth of an ongoing movement for equality. This is the story at the heart of My Life on the Road.”
