10 Books That Are Shaping Modern Feminism

…you’ll want to listen to these eye-opening audiobooks over and over again.


It seems redundant to say, but I’ve always considered myself to be a feminist. A feminist activist, in fact. When I was eleven years old and my mom handed me my first copy of The Feminine Mystique. With a serious look on her face, she told me that reading it was more important than doing my homework. Her seriousness reflected the content of this manifesto — it’s not a light read. 

10 Books That Are Shaping Modern Feminism

It was the prose within this heavy book (which was an especially daunting book at such a young age — I wish there’d been an audiobook version back then!) that catapulted the feminist movement to new heights and pried opened the eyes of an entire generation. A generation of women, most of whom didn’t realize that they were being controlled by men, by the media, and by their own sexist expectations on themselves and other women. And while I may not have fully absorbed its importance at such a young age, when I re-read it as a teenager it helped me realize that to see the truth, I must first question every assumption, every photograph and article in the magazines I read, and -especially- my own perceptions of what’s appropriate for my gender.

Many have continued in Betty Friedan’s footsteps by writing books that challenge society’s gender grooves. Here are ten that are essential reading listening for any woman (or man) who wants to understand herself and the society we all live in:

We Should All Be Feminists

We hold this truth to be self-evident — am I right??! Then again, it’s not lost on me that the Declaration of Independence only cited that all “men” should be equal. This quick-listen audiobook is a rally cry for all feminists. Adapted from the author’s Ted Talk about her experience of sexism growing up in Nigeria and how it has affected her life, this moving monolog discusses why we still need feminism and why each and every person should be a feminist.

All The Single Ladies

There is so much to love in this audiobook. In many ways, it serves as a validation of single life. I really enjoyed this look at the increasing number of single women in society and how single women have been treated throughout history. Previous generations of women didn’t think they had the option of being single, but all that is rapidly changing. Unmarried women have helped to usher in major social change, including abolition and the labor movement. The author illustrates that single women are multifaceted and can have full lives beyond trying to find a man. Any woman who spent some portion of their adult life single will see themselves in this book.

Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman

When you’re ready for some laughs, listen to this audiobook. It’s simultaneously hysterical and thought-provoking. She asks the question, “So, what do you do when you’re too big, in a world where bigness is cast not only as aesthetically objectionable, but also as a moral failing?” She is a big woman with a big mouth who doesn’t fit the mold of a “normal, pretty woman”. She tells her story in a brutally honest way, leaving us questioning our oppressive idea of beauty and where it came from.

I Am Malala

Perhaps the youngest celebrity feminist, this young woman deserves every accolade sent her way — and she’s received many. The story of Malala Yousafzai is remarkable in every way, and she is an amazing, courageous young lady. Her story is astounding; the circumstances that she was forced to live through, and her bravery and sense of purpose, brought world focus to the tragedies in her homeland. Malala’s powerful story has managed to inspire, engage and mobilize a young generation of both male and female feminists, and educate them about women’s issues around the world. No small feat!

Fight Like a Girl

Another rally cry — you can feel the (justified) anger in her words.  She is unapologetic, fierce and informative. This audiobook will help you get fired up and assure you that you are not alone in how you feel. It’ll make you question sayings that you may not have noticed were oppressive and sexist, like “he (insert verb here)’s like a girl”, and how the modern-day patriarchy operates. It will make you laugh, cry and seethe with rage. And it’ll open your eyes.

How To Be a Woman

This excerpt tells you all you need to know about this funny and poignant audiobook: “We need the word Feminism back real bad. When statistics come in saying that only 29 percent of American women would describe themselves as feminist -and only 42 of British women- I used to think, ‘What do you think feminism IS, ladies? What part of “liberation for women” is not for you? Is it freedom to vote? The right not to be owned by the man you marry? The campaign for equal pay? Vogue, by Madonna? Jeans? Did all that good s*** GET ON YOUR NERVES? Or were you just DRUNK AT THE TIME OF SURVEY?’  These days, however, I am much calmer, since I realized that it’s technically impossible for a woman to argue against feminism. Without feminism, you wouldn’t be allowed to have a debate on a woman’s place in society. You’d be too busy giving birth on the kitchen floor, biting on a wooden spoon, so as not to disturb the men’s card game before going back to hoeing the rutabaga field.”

Everyday Sexism

On a mission to help women recognize and refuse the sexism we face on a daily basis, the author has started a movement to collect thousands of tales from women (and men) of abuse, catcalling, and sexism through social media. Each of the 12 chapters begins with two pages of eye-opening statistics, along with tweets from those who have experienced sexism in all its ugly forms. Groping. Pinching. Catcalling. Rape. Threats. Forced touching. Verbal slights. Public advertisements blatantly showing abuse. Sexual abuse. Gaslighting. “Can’t you take a joke?” Raging–physically raging–males. Domestic violence. Intimidation. And Fear. Fear. Fear. Keys in hands. Crossing the street. Parking under the streetlight. Locking the doors and looking in the backseat. Is someone following me? How to get home from the library after dark. Pepper spray. Off to the ladies’ room in groups. Not putting down a drink and going back to it. Passed over for a raise. Told to wear different clothing. Assumed to be the one serving the coffee. Who drives the car? Who always croaks in Disney films? Why does Xena wear a bikini to war? A constant and just-under-the-radar barrage that we all simply take as our daily world…until it’s gathered in one place and put on parade so we can see the hideous forest and not just a tree or two. Or ten. Or 70.

The Beauty Myth

After listening to this audiobook, you’ll never think of the word “beauty” the same way. Get ready to be exposed to the unfairness of the patriarchically-manufactured images of ‘beauty’ we see every day, and how it oppresses each and every woman. The author highlights the problems with gender in our society by shining a light on the issues of beauty and the everyday culture that focuses on women’s outer appearances instead of valuing who we are on the inside. By using examples of products, companies, and breaking down the mind games they play and the profits they make with the insecurities of women, this audiobook is an eye-opening masterpiece.

Delusions of Gender

In this fascinating and well-researched look at the “neurological” and sociological bases of gender, the author cites plenty of studies to demonstrate why the social environment that children grow up in is the major determinant of gender roles (and indeed, gender inequality). For example, telling girls that they are inherently not good at math has a damaging effect on their confidence. This, in turn, causes many girls and women to turn away from those fields. And vice versa- telling men they are not good at caring for others can cause them to turn their noses up at the idea of entering “girlish” fields. This audiobook is an engaging way to learn about gender roles, education, social psychology, neuroscience, evo psych, or just basically how people tick (as opposed how we *think* we tick).

A Brief History of Misogyny: The World’s Oldest Prejudice

In order to understand where we need to go, we first have to understand the past. Every woman inevitably experiences some misogynistic attitudes from both men and, ironically, women. It’s easy to get upset when somebody abuses or attempts to abuse you as a person. It is much harder to recognize that much of this abuse comes to you for a sole reason of being a woman. To realize that you are not at fault. That the reason of what you go through is systemic and pervasive, and so deeply rooted in our world history throughout the ages. That the only way to beat the monster of misogyny is with a consistent systemic change. And that this change can’t happen by itself. Women need to open their eyes and see what’s happening to them. And this audiobook is just that incredible guide that can help women do that.

  1. Arlene Davis

    I don’t love ‘How to be a woman’ by Caitlin Moran, but the rest of your list is awesome

  2. Isabela Quagliato

    These books remind us of how crucial it is for our society to change, how our ambitions are taken for granted.

  3. Andrea Jones

    Thanks to the latest technology, I can now listen and closely imagine inspirational books like the ones you listed here…

  4. Rabeca

    You’re a HILARIOUS FEMINIST, Hilary!!!

  5. Carmen Griffin

    Keep going, Hilary and Audible! Works of this sort are much appreciated and needed!

  6. Zoraida Martin

    Moved! Thanks for the recommendation and great synopsis, Hilary! Thought-invoking works!

  7. Della Martin

    Seriously so lame that ‘How to be a woman’ by Caitlin Moran was included; a book which addresses no global injustice WHATSOEVER.

  8. Rosalia Russell

    5 stars for this! Thanks for the list! ✴️✴️✴️✴️✴️

  9. Elizabeth Gonzalez

    Great job! I’ve already listened to a couple of these and they certainly made me feel courageous about being a woman! Applause to you Hilary and Urbanette for coming up with this compilation! Keep inspiring your readers!

  10. Karen Abeyta

    Thank you Audible for these inspiring and influential audibooks! And thank you, Urbanette for introducing me to these titles! 👍👍👍

  11. Connie Schmidt

    Relevant to our modern society #feminism

  12. Maxine Ford

    These are all informative, inspiring and motivating!

  13. Maddi Lemmon

    I’ve read and listened to “The Feminine Mystique.” I wish Audible would “rework” the narration though. It was a bit forced.

  14. Esther Devine

    I’m up for some intellectual reading in the next couple of months. Will start with some of these audiobooks. Thanks!

  15. Marjory Brooks

    Reading the synopsis you provided, I can conclude that these audiobooks give a vibrant take on feminism.

  16. I think these are all interesting. I’m confused which one should I subscribe to first 😔📲💻

  17. Joan Morales

    I checked on “We Should All be Feminists.” The length is just 45 minutes?! Is this just a narration (and not a book)?

  18. Maria Rapier

    Women are the future! Sadly, though, culture remains a crucial factor in women empowerment…

  19. Jurik

    Sexual abuse and other violence against women are being experienced not just in the USA but also around the world. Thanks to the feminists for fighting to women rights.

  20. Ofelia Ruley

    Malala Yousafzai… Wow.. You have an amazing story. I salute you, girl.

  21. Brittany West

    Good thing that we have books like these. This will help the feminists to spread what they are fighting for.

  22. Oxi Harger

    I support feminism. I believe that we’re all equal.

  23. Let’s fight for our rights. All women shouldn’t be being controlled by men. We all have our own perspective on life. I believe that women can also do what men can do.

  24. Lisa Bryson

    Thanks, Urbanette! Will going to get a copy of this audiobook. I’m a proud feminist!

  25. Florence Frederick

    I wanna read the How To Be A Woman!!! I meant.. listen? Lol

  26. Doreen Morales

    I know that most men are good when it comes to Mathematics, but please, stop comparing us to men. We are good in our own ways.

  27. Deanna Woods

    My dad used to tell me that “You’re not good at Math” it’s because I’m a girl.

  28. Joyce McAllister

    Hah! I don’t believe that only men are good at math. I’m a Civil Engineer, and I’m a proud woman.

  29. Sad to say, that a lot of women are experiencing sexual abuse. Not just in America, but in other parts of the world as well. 😞

  30. Eloise Ferris

    I’m a fan of Malala. She’s a tough girl.

  31. Francis Vest

    You’ve got to be kidding me, girl. These books are nonsense. I don’t believe in gender equality. Men and women are way different to each other, stop acting like we can do men stuff because there are things we’re not capable of doing.😒

  32. Hachi Komatsu

    If I were you when my mom gives me the book. I won’t read it. Hmmm.. What is she thinking to know that you’re just 11 then? 🙄

  33. Genie Mackenzie

    I’ve heard the Notes From A Loud Woman. Lol, It’s very educational if you’re really a feminist. It’s funny as well. You’ll never get bored on this.

  34. Helen Boone

    I have a question, is there some men who’re also a feminist?

  35. Terri

    Is being a feminist is a gender requirement or not? I mean, in this generation?

  36. Thank God there’s audiobook in this generation. I’m not a good reader, I hate reading. Lol 🤣

  37. April Henry

    Whenever I read about feminism, the song “Chivalry is dead” comes out in my mind. 😆

  38. Edna Badillo

    Oh, my!!! I’ve been looking for that book. (I am Malala). A friend of mine told me that it is indeed an amazing book. 😱

  39. Monique Malick

    I will definitely look for those books. I’m a feminist, and I would love to share the words to other women who are experiencing abuse. Let’s fight for our gender equality.

  40. Arlen Given

    This article is worth the read. I’m not an anti-feminist or not even pro, but after reading this, I think I’m on the pro side now.

  41. Blanche Martina

    Yay! I want to know how single women changes throughout the years! Where can I buy that audiobook?! Can someone please tell me?!

  42. Jodi Thil

    Thanks, Urbanette for fighting for our rights as women. Crimes about abusing women are increasing, and that is very alarming. All women should know that we are as powerful as men, fight for our rights.

  43. Brett Lee

    If women want some equality, is chivalry is dead? Equality doesn’t mean that you stop respecting women, equality means, respecting what women want.

  44. Osana Smith

    I will probably share this with my colleagues. I’m a feminist, and I will help you to spread the word to other women. We fight for our equality, men and women should be equally treated.

  45. Candis Melton

    What a great article, Urbanette! This is what I love about reading Urbanette because they post articles about women power. Kudos!

  46. Ida Reeves

    I want to listen/read the We Should All Be Feminist. How does she survive the sexism in Nigeria? Sexism is happening not just in the United States but all over the world.

  47. Patricia Montague

    I have the audiobook of How To Be A Woman. It’s a good book that every feminist should listen. I recommend it.

  48. Carol Joyner

    I am not a good reader, but I’m a good listener. Having an audiobook about feminism is a good idea.I can listen to the stories of different women who fight for our rights.

  49. I salute her mom. She knows the best for her daughter. I’m going to do the same with my daughter, so where I can get those books?

  50. Kath Brantley

    Being a woman is hard. There are times that men will underestimate your capabilities, you can’t go out alone when it’s late midnight, if you make the first move you’ll look like desperate, and when applying for a job, you’re not allowed to apply for a man’s job. This is how unfair the world is.

  51. Olive Williams

    Sad to say, when we say “beauty” we are referring to the physical appearance of the woman, and not what’s inside of it. Make-ups and plastic surgery cover the real beauty.

  52. Carrie Bleau

    I’m a woman, but I’m not a feminist. I still believe that men are our superior. God created men first, that is why we should obey them and trust them. There’s a reason why God created men first, and that is to rule the world.

  53. Sherry Manust

    Feminists only want gender equality. We are now in our modern technology. Before, men are the superior because they believe that women are just good in cooking. We are in our new generation, where women can now do what men can do.

  54. Debra Whaley

    The crime rate about rate is increasing every year. Men know that women are weak. Now is the time that we should stand up for our right, for your safety. Rape is not a joke. I support feminism.

  55. I just watched Emma Watson’s interview about feminism. I have no idea about feminism at first, after watching that, I become more interested. Now, I after reading this article, it makes me more interested in how feminism works.

  56. Wilma Moore

    Hmmmm…. I’m not a pro or anti-feminism, but after reading this article I see some interest about the book of “How To Be A Woman”.

  57. Katherine Donnelly

    It’s fine to teach your child about equality, but letting her read a feminist book? What kind of parenting is that? Let your kids believe what they truly believe.

  58. George Sumanta

    The delusion of gender is interesting. Where can I get these audiobooks? Men can also care about others too, it’s not being girlish, it’s about being caring and sensitive. I don’t believe that women are not good in math, the winner in our math quiz bee is a girl.

  59. Jeweli Prater

    Wow! Didn’t know that there are books like these! I believe in feminism, but I’m scared to let it out. I believe that women can also do, what men can do.

  60. A big woman with a big mouth. Lol. love how she frankly says everything about big women. Being in the category of plus size women are not easy, men will make fun of you and discriminate you.

  61. Lancy Stanford

    I feel bad for women who’re being discriminated because of their weight. Most of the men are actually basing on the physical features of the women before they fall in love, but there’s nothing we can do about that.

  62. Zerin Martin

    I believe in equality when it comes to gender. But men and women are different from each other. Men are men and women are women, there are things that only men can do, and only women can do. I think that’s fair enough.

  63. Marina Josef

    I’m a proud feminist! When I was young, I also read a book about feminism. I don’t know, there’s something about that book that I really love. I’ll fight for what is right, and equality is damn right.

  64. Luthi Sanders

    The “All The Single Ladies” audiobook is very interesting. Good thing that there’s kind of book like that. Anyone knows where I can download or purchase the audiobook?

  65. Marina Bozek

    Luckily, we have the modern technology now. Thanks for the list of audiobooks! I really want to learn more about feminism, but I hate reading. Audiobook will help me to that.

  66. Kseniya Tomlin

    Love your mom tho. She only wants what is the best for you. She’s a total rock!

  67. Whoa! Wait, she’s reading books about feminism at the age of 11? That’s awesome!

  68. Sibel Jenkinson

    The Feminine Mystique is a classic and I think still relevant even in our modern day. It got me reflecting. However, I WON’T RECOMMEND the audiobook. Poor quality of reading, passion is missing, monotonous, flat and awful!

  69. Gregor Karsten

    Okay, I admit, I won’t or have a little time and patience about feminism. But what I appreciate about Audible and audiobooks is that I’m allowed to tackle and somehow learn about this topic that I find of little interest. I guess there’ nothing wrong in giving it a try.

  70. Rachel

    I believe these are mind-enriching books. Pardon me, but I’d rather read than listen to them. I find listening to words spoken as far less active than reading and I think it leads me to disengagement and less enjoyment.

  71. I find audiobooks more convenient than books for I can just load them on my phone and whip them out whenever and wherever I want. I’m a community library user and I usually find time to find great audiobooks from the library.

    I’m a subscriber of Audible.com as well. I appreciate that thousands of discounted (and a number of free) audiobooks are offered for a small monthly fee. I don’t mind paying as long as I’m “intellectually” contented!

  72. Definitely interesting! I’m a feminist and I’m looking for some ways to promote it. This helped me with some inspiration. I’m going to let my friends read this and I’ll encourage them to listen to at least one of these audiobooks you recommended. Thanks a bunch!

  73. Thina

    Naomi Wolf’s ‘Promiscuities’ would be a good addition to this list

  74. I’d add:
    Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
    The Women’s Room by Marilyn French
    The Female Eunuch by Betty Friedan

  75. Melissa Mendez

    To be honest – there is no ‘Top Ten Feminist Books’ list that can in any way convey the vast amount of stunning, intellectual literature (both factual and fiction) produced globally by women who might be called ‘feminist’, that addresses the issues of gender and its stratifications and inequalities. It feels rather futile and a little asinine to pretend it can, and excludes so many works of genius, and different aspects of the subject. That’s even before we consider feminist writing produced outside of books. This article reminds me of a North American I once heard in a Dublin bookshop saying “I wanna see the Top Ten Irish writers! Like Oscar Wilde and that”.

  76. Stephen

    Audible’s collection of books is pretty good. Thanks for recommending these titles. I can’t say I’m feminist but I still find them inspiring!

  77. Evelyn Harris

    I’m happy no one’s suggested Germaine Greer! For a different perspective, I’d like to mention Whipping Girl by Julia Serano. It tries to get down to what feminism is really about, and argues that certain rigid definitions of femininity actually harm the cause and exclude those that might be able to help progress it, namely transgenders.

  78. I would add the Female Eunuch. Of course, it’s a bit dated but it’s still relevant. I’m reading The Golden Notebook at the moment and probably would include that on my list of best feminist books, though I reckon the author would not have considered it as purely feminist. The story gives a good understanding of many aspects of women’s lives.

  79. Kimberly Holder

    I highly prefer audio books because it allows me to “read” while cycling, at the gym, driving, or even falling asleep with Audible’s great sleep mode feature.

    • Diana

      Yeah, I agree with your points. But I think audiobooks take longer to consume than actual reading does.

  80. Ani Hoker

    I started to listen to some Audible’s audiobooks (the short ones) and I find it interesting because I can remember gist better than reading.

    • Me too! It all depends on what type of learner you are… some people learn better by listening, some by viewing, and some by reading and writing.

  81. Luthi Sanders

    I find audiobooks perfect for those who struggle with sitting and actually reading a book. I think these are stimulating titles and I hope Audible produce more powerful titles like the ones already mentioned here.

  82. Kseniya Tomlin

    Imaginative, creative and encouraging works for Audible! Thanks for the heads up, Urbanette!

  83. Jesse Wyss

    Great read! I listen to audiobooks but I think I retain information better when I read. Do you think it’s because I’m not a good listener?!

  84. Jessie Fernande

    I’m thankful Audible is around. I listen to audiobooks when I travel for work. I think listening is more natural, isn’t it that we were trained with bedtime stories (read by our parents) before we learned to read by ourselves?

  85. Lana Wiliam

    Not a fan of audiobooks but a bookworm. I wonder if listening to audiobooks have the same intellectual impact as reading???

    • I guess it depends on how closely you listen, and if you take notes 🙂

  86. Alena Martin

    Intelligent, influential and inspiring!!!

  87. Nataliya Smith

    I just realized that there’s a lot of privilege I take for granted. I can be influential in a positive way. #feminist

  88. Jurik Smith

    “Audiobooks work better for me than in-text and I’d like to commend Audible for always giving me my money’s worth.

    Hilary, your article is a great list that can help me assess which ones to subscribe to after I finish Stephenie Meyer’s “”The Chemist.”””

  89. Angelo Henderso

    I’ve read “The Beauty Myth.” It’s disturbing because it highlights a lot of issues women face. I wonder if it will have the same impact when I listen… 🤔

  90. Selli Coaze

    I’m doing myself a favor, I’m listening to all. I’d like to start now, but I wonder if I can get any of these for free? My free subscription to Audible is going to end in 8 days.

  91. Juli Woods

    I want to learn and develop intellectually, but I’d rather listen than read. I appreciate that Audible creates stimulating works like these.

  92. Hena Taylor

    You’re a brilliant thinker and writer, Hilary! Thanks for sharing these influential and encouraging titles. I’m confused thinking about which one to listen to first!

  93. Cristina Joseff

    Life changing books!

  94. Nancy Smith

    You just changed my views, Hilary! Thanks for putting your incredible thoughts and suggestions.

  95. Maria Bruce

    Bookmarked! I’m going to share this thought-provoking article with my friends! Let’s all unite to make a difference 🙂 These audiobooks are perfect starting point! I would also add The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir and The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.

  96. Jessi Agusta

    These ‘top 10 feminist books’ don’t actually list the top 10 feminist books by either sales, critical acclaim, intellectual rigour, word of mouth, impact on society, raising of public consciousness or any other yardstick other than the journalists apparent desire to list obscure works. Ok to list as interesting feminist books but I doubt even Caitlin Moran thinks the above list is ‘top 10’.

    • Lusi Martin

      “Only one of your criteria can be objectively measured. The rest of your point is consequently invalid as your subjectivism is no more ‘accurate’ than the author’s subjectivism. You could of course conjure your own list on such terms, but it wouldn’t detract from this one.

      The dual purposes of any list such as this is, A) to highlight works and B) provoke debate.

      You complain that these are “”obscure”” titles. Perhaps others will find them obscure too, and seek them out. That’s a good thing, right?”

    • Anila William

      These are great books there is no doubt. And i wouldn’t dispute the list to much. In terms of getting boys/lads into a bit of feminist reading though…you could do a lot worse than putting Caitlin Moran’s how to be a women, and the everyday sexism book into a few hands. It’s your everyday boy/lad/man that needs to get engaged with this stuff

  97. Honey Smith

    “After reading The Feminine Mystique, I learned to look at things a little differently. I learned how to be part of the changes in this world, I decided not to fear.

    My NOTE to Audible: Please re-work the recording. I think you need a narrator who can read the work more passionately.”

  98. Bela Christo

    I haven’t read or listened to any of the titles you mentioned but browsing through your article made me feel like I was conversing with a best friend, confiding the secrets and weaknesses of my heart that no one else understands. Thanks for being feminist and sharing your views with us, your readers!

  99. Quin Meri

    Impressive article, Hilary! Fantastic work, Audible! I’m excited to listen to at least 3 of these. They are inspiring and serve as the eye-opener to modern womanhood!

  100. Jenifer Jeni

    Great read! You just challenged my thoughts, biases, judgments and stereotypes!

  101. Ana Brose

    “I’m an audiobook fan, I enjoy “”reading with my ears.”” I’ve had listened to a number of audiobooks from Audible but I never tried checking out these titles that have strong and smart tone.

    Thanks for the write-up, Hilary! I believe every woman should read these. Let’s be outspoken, let’s fight for our rights and equality, we have our weapons — wit and high spirits!”

  102. These books remind us of how crucial it is for our society to change, how our ambitions are taken for granted.

  103. Ani Hoker

    Great job, Hilary! You’ve recommended a book for everyone: a diehard feminist (who knows what she wants to achieve); a confused one who’s still unsure what the word means; and for those who are feeling tired of “feminism.”

  104. Eloisa Clay

    “Thanks for the recommendation. Among these, I’ve only read “”We should all be feminists.””

    I consider myself a “”feminist activist”” too. I can see how the indignities displayed in the public sphere have been going unchecked. I believe that WE, women, should persist and get involved to make sure our voices are heard.”
