Feminist Writing Selections--Ideas? [Jun. 13th, 2004|02:08 am]


My high school starts each year with a week of "Writing and Thinking Workshop" where we are given a book of various short writing selections (all sorts of stuff--fiction, nonfiction, poetry, prose...) which we read, write about, and discuss.

Female writers have usually been underrepresented in these books, but this year the feminist club at my school has the opportunity to choose a few selections. I'm really excited about the opportunity to help change the often negative reactions people have to "feminism"--both the word and the concept.

So I was wondering if anybody here could suggest some pieces. We'd especially like to have some from first wave feminists, or by men, or that talk about the value and meaning of the word feminism.

But we're open to anything. So if there's any piece of feminist writing (any type) that you really like, please let me know!
