Sisters Are Doing It for Themselves!

Avem câteva cărți care ne sunt extrem de dragi. Nu doar pentru că sunt bine scrise, captivante și foarte frumoase. Ci și pentru că demonstrează cât de importantă este contribuția femeilor în societate. O să vă lăsăm titlurile și link-urile la final.

Dar înainte, vă propunem câteva citate pentru egoul feminin

“I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself.” – Charlotte Brontë


“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” – Nora Ephron


“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.” – Jane Austen


“I hate men who are afraid of women’s strength.” – Anaïs Nin


“Women have served all these centuries as looking glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size.” – Virginia Woolf


“Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


“I raise up my voice—not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard… we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” – Malala Yousafzai


“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.” – Maya Angelou

Și cărțile promise. Am ales trei care sperăm să vă inspire:

In the Company of Women, de Grace Bonney

Profiles over 100 of influential and creative women from all ages, races, backgrounds, and industries. Chock full of practical, inspirational advice for those looking to forge their own paths, these interviews detail the keys to success (for example, going with your gut; maintaining meaningful and lasting relationships), highlight the important of everyday rituals (meditating; creating a daily to-do list), and dispense advice for the next generation of women entrepreneurs and makers (stay true to what you believe in; have patience). The book is rounded out with hundreds of lush, original photographs of the women in their work space.

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, de Francesca Cavallo și Elena Favilli

Swing Time, de Zadie Smith

An ambitious, exuberant new novel moving from north west London to West Africa, from the multi-award-winning author of White Teeth and On Beauty Two brown girls dream of being dancers – but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It’s a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either…
