Books for Change

Virago Press are doing #BooksforChange for the month of March.  Every day we get to share our most influential and favourite female writers and female characters.   I can’t wait to see everyone else’s favourites and maybe discover some new books to read!

This March, we are running a month-long social media campaign, which we’re calling #BooksforChange. Inspired by the official hashtag for International Women’s Day 2017 #BeBoldForChange, we’re going to spend the whole month sharing inspiring books by women, and we want you to get involved. Every day we’ll be sharing Virago books that match the theme, and we’d love to see your choices too! Will you be joining us? Let us know your choice for day 1 in the comments below, or share a photo using #BooksforChange. #virago #viragopress #viragomodernclassics #vmc #viragobooks #tbr #books #bookstagram #igreads #newbooks #classicbooks #illustration #currentread #currentlyreading #amreading #readwomen #winter #london #iwd #feminism #onthisday

On day 1 of #BooksforChange, the book that made me feminist is without a doubt The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.  That woman’s writing changed my life.  She writes across genres in a way that just drew me in from such a young age.  I devoured everything she’d written when I was in high school.

If you’ve never read any Margaret Atwood you must!
