Women Empowerment: Best Told In Books

The fight for equality in the treatment of men and women had ignited a cultural war that raged for decades thus many people call it the “longest revolution.” Until now, women are still struggling to get involved in the conversation and for their voices to be heard. Some of the women’s movement’s goals are to end gender-based violence, gain access to healthcare, equal pay, and equal participation in politics.

With the movement starting even before some of us are aware of it happening, there are tons of memorable events and iconic people behind the movement that needs to be talked about and appreciated for what they contributed. Telling the story of the feminist legacy on books is where it is the most impactful since books are the symbol of education and revolution.

Literature, according to a Gulf News article, is the mirror of society due to the fact that whatever is will inspire a person to write. It has had a great influence on the development and progress of society. Literature molded civilization, changed political systems, and shed a light on injustices and ignorance.

Since the feminist movement is a remarkable revolution, people from various backgrounds participating, countless stories and narratives have been published to share their experiences and to let people realize that this movement is different for each people. Every story is special and is worth telling. At the present, the movement is also being told through videos and other forms of media but it is worth mentioning that these contents are mostly taken from books.  

  Women’s movement has already achieved unimaginable feats and those feats are being told in books, the instrument that educated women before society deemed them worthy of education, is the 360 turn which is a formidable thing to witness.
