Home Feminism Book List
I compiled the list of books on the UN Women’s Instagram and all the suggestions into one big book list. It was made in Goodreads to make these titles easy to find, though a few titles are missing. While making this, I did notice that some were doubles but rather than shortening the list, I kept some that had more than one edition. There are still 3 missing that are not on Goodreads and 2 of which I couldn’t find at all.
Before posting, I did go back to the Instagram post and double check suggestions, so there are far more than 75. The final number is actually 105 books suggested.

The three missing titles are:
by Fariba Alasvand, available only in Italian from the Book Depository. L’Islam e la Donna
Is Female to Male as Nature is to Culture by Sherry Ortner. There were several books by Ortner, but none with that specific title that I found. Please help if you know anything about this book.
Rise Woman by Nonhlanhla Mnisi, I could only find Life Changes on both Goodreads and Book Depository.
