Feminist Holiday Gift Guide  

If you're gift-giving this holiday season, here's your Feminist Gift Guide to go by. Use it to find the perfect present for the feminist(s) in your life, or put what you like on your wishlist for you to enjoy. Feel free to comment with any other feminist gift suggestions!

For the feminist newbie:

  • Newbies can learn about everything from patriarchy to Alice Walker in Cathia Jenainati's book Introducing Feminism. The perfect introduction for any person interested in joining the movement!

  • The Black Feminist Reader will introduce them to writings by bell hooks, Angela Davis, Toni Morrison, and many more.

  • Queer Studies: A Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Anthology can give them a crash course in queer studies.

  • Help any new feminist learn about the modern feminist movement by getting them a subscription to the cutting-edge Bitch magazine.
  • And now that they're feminists, it's time to shout it from the rooftops. Give the feminist n00bz in your life "This is What a Feminist Looks Like" gear from, or a poster of the classic feminist icon, Rosie the Riveter.

For the sexually empowered:

For the vagina-lover:

For the bookworm:

For the movie/TV show addict:

  • Teeth (an ordinary girl learns she has a toothed vagina that is not afraid to bite anyone who mistreats it)

  • Iron Jawed Angels (follow Alice Paul and Lucy Burns as they fight for votes for women)

  • Daughters of Afghanistan (a documentary about women in Afghanistan struggling to put their lives back together after the removal of the Taliban)

  • Death Proof (bad ass women get sweet revenge)

  • Sugar Rush (a hilarious British TV series about a 15 year-old lesbian in love with her best friend)

What next?
