Our March Book of the Month is the Perfect Read for Women's History Month

 

"One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman."
Simone de Beauvoir

 

Every year in March, we celebrate Women's History Month, a month dedicated to highlighting the achievements of women throughout history and their contributions to contemporary society. 

It's safe to say that we wouldn't be where we are today without the incredible women who pioneered inventions such as computer software, stem cell isolation, telecommunications technology, and even the board game Monopoly.

It seems only fitting that our March book of the month, What Would Beauvoir Do?, is named for one of the pioneers of existential philosophy and feminism, Simone de Beauvoir.

What Would Beauvoir Do? is part history lesson, part self-help book, and it consults the world's greatest feminists — from Gloria Steinem to Alice Walker to Mary Wollstonecraft — to answer important questions like: 

    • Should I speak up when my colleague makes a sexist joke?

    • I like wearing makeup. Is that bad?

    • and How can I raise feminist sons?

Seamlessly blending humour and helpful advice, What Would Beauvior Do? is a celebration of women's achievements, a history of women's rights, an introduction to feminist theory, and a very entertaining read.

Who said feminism can't be fun?
