The 9 Best Books About Womanhood

It’s lit

Women's History Month is nearly over, but the experience of being a woman is something that never ends—it literally lasts a lifetime. At this current time, women seem to be the biggest threat to society (at least as far as the government is concerned). Instead of dwelling on this dark reality, we picked nine of our favorite books about womanhood that completely changed our lives at different stages along the journey. Some of these books are old classics while others are more new wave novels, but each of them nail different aspects of what it means to be a woman. All of these stories also offer different perspectives across the spectrum and showcase the various struggles and triumphs. Though some of these experiences will be more relatable than others, they are all important nonetheless. Take some notes while you browse through the gallery, below.
