Feminist Theory

As a feminist I think it’s really important to read theory on the movement, past and present. Here I will be documenting my thoughts and reviews on books I have read that fall under this category. As someone who is always working to become more intersectional and inclusive in their feminist thinking, I would love any recommendations of non-fiction, feminist writers from different cultures, countries, religions and sexualities. Please feel free to comment with any ideas!
