I woke up this morning and had the luxury of sitting with a cup of strong black coffee while listening to the rain and reading posts by some of my favorite book bloggers. Meredith's post at Dolce Bellezza brought to my attention that The Classics Club event this month is Feminist Literature in March. Meredith's post got me thinking and so I started looking at lists. Here are a few lists from The Classics Club blog:
- Resource on Feminist Classics
- Persephone literature
- Virago literature (about Virago Modern Classics)
- Feminist Literature
I've decided to read Are Women Human? by Dorothy Sayers. Dorothy Sayers was one of the first women to graduate from Oxford University. One of the things I admire about Dorothy Sayers, is that she did not devote her time to talking or writing about feminism, but instead lived her life doing the work for which she was suited whether or not society understood her choices as "feminine." My little volume contains the two essays that Sayers wrote about women's role in society: "Are Women Human?" and "The Human-Not-Quite-Human."
I'd love to hear about your reading choice for Feminist Literature in March if you are participating!
