Hi! Not all of these are specifically about feminism, but a lot of them are about women/women’s rights/civil rights in general (also from all different time periods so clearly some are a bit old school feminist, like “The Awakening”)

- Half the Sky: Nick Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
- The Beauty Myth: Naomi Wolf
- I am Malala: Malala Yousafzai
- The Bedwetter: Sarah Silverman
- Bossypants: Tina Fey
- Reading Lolita in Tehran - Azar Nafisi
- The Awakening: Kate Chopin
- Ain’t I a Woman?: Bell Hooks
- A Room of One’s Own: Virginia Woolf

- Pussy Riot!: Collection of documents/letters
- The Vagina Monologues: Eve Ensler

Sampat Pal Devi, 47I am the commander of the Gulabi Gang. I started the association in the 1990s, but I named it the Gulabi Gang two years ago. We aim to empower women, promote child education with an emphasis on girls, and stop corruption and domestic violence. I visit numerous villages every day and meet the various members of the gang. We have gang meetings where we decide the plan of action if we hear of something that we oppose going on. First we go to the police and request that they do something. But since the administration is against the poor people of our country, we often end up taking matters into our own hands. We first speak to the husband who is beating his wife. If he doesn’t understand then we ask his wife to join us while we beat him with lathis. Our missions have a 100 percent success rate. We have never failed in bringing justice when it comes to domestic problems. Dealing with the administration is the tricky part since we cannot always take the law in our hands—especially with such corrupt lawmakers. We did beat up some corrupt officials but we were ultimately helpless. The goons of the corrupt officials and the political parties constantly threaten me. Once, a few goons came and threatened to shoot me down, but the women came to my rescue and threw bricks at them and they ran away. They haven’t come back since. Although most of the time I travel alone, I am not scared of anyone. My women are with me, and they are my strength. My family didn’t always support me going out and doing what I do, but when I resisted and explained to my husband, he understood and has supported me since. It isn’t easy to do this. I have no money. I travel everywhere on an old bicycle. Some of our supporters help us with small donations and charity. I want this movement to carry on and would like support from international or local agencies.
