Becoming by Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama is arguably one of the most iconic women of our era. Most commonly known as the First Lady of the USA, Michella Obama was the first African American woman to serve the roleIn doing so, she created a welcoming, inclusive White House. In contrast to being a powerful advocate for ladies, we have also had the pleasure of witnessing her Carpool Karaoke with James Corden; if you haven’t already watched, we urge you to. 

In this memoir, Michelle invites us into her world; from her childhood growing up on the South Side of Chicago, to her time spent at America’s most famous address. She details her triumphs and tribulations, both public and private, in her own words. This memoir is filled with honesty and wit, highlighting the in-depth personality of a woman in the glare of the media. 

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

I write about being a Black American woman, however, I am always talking about what it’s like to be a human being. This is how we are, what makes us laugh, and this is how we fall and how we somehow, amazingly, stand up again”. 

Maya Angelou, as a Black woman, writes about the discrimination and poverty in the world, but also the hope, achievement and celebration the world can bring. Maya Angelou has double vision when looking at the world, which she portrays through this read.  

This book is all about her childhood, brought up by her grandmother in the south of America in the 1930s. Mary learns about the power that white people possess and details the trauma she goes through at the hands of her mother’s lover. 

Women Don't Owe You Pretty by Florence Given

This book explores all the corners of feminist conversation, from insecurities and deciding whether to dump them, through to the male gaze and how that shapes women’s identities. It is seen as an accessible step into feminism for women who want to transform the way they view themselves.  

In a world where women are either too much or not enough, this book tells us to fight the toxic structure of our patriarchal societyrather than using that negative energy on ourselves. 

#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso

This book, now turned Netflix series, is about how Sophia started off broke, selling vintage clothes on eBay in order to pay rent and health insurance. Eight years later, she is the founder, CEO and creative director of Nasty Gal – a $100 million plus online fast fashion retailer. She has written #GirlBoss to illustrate a unique path to success. 

Although a difficult journey, #GirlBoss is ultimately about proving that being successful isn’t about how popular you were in school or what university you went to, it is more about trusting your gut.  

This book can teach you all the unconventional ways to success and starting up a business. 

How The Pill Changes Everything: Your Brain on Birth Control by Dr. Sarah E. Hill

Hormonal birth control is taken by millions of women around the world. Until recently, we have known very little about how the pill affects the non-reproductive systems of the female body. Dr Sarah Hill uses the latest science to reveal how the pill changes everything, for better and for worse. She puts the power in your hands to make smarter, more informed decisions about your health. 

This book is refreshingly unbiased, and Hill’s hilarious commentary makes quite serious topics very light-hearted. It is good to have a book of information on such an under researched, taboo topic. It does also focus on the positives of contraception.
