Hey.
I'm kinda new and would love to learn more about feminism. I've seen a book called Milk and Honey (not sure of author). Does anyone know if this is a good book to start with?

I don't know that one.

Cordelia Fine, Delusions of Gender is a good read!

Germaine Greer, The Female Eunuch is also a classic. (and one of the few books on feminism I have read, admittedly.)

An enthusiastic second to Delusions of Gender.

The Equality Illusion by Kate Banyard. It's great, so well researched. Everything she says is backed up by studies and statistics.

A third for delusions of gender. I'm currently reading Testosterone Rex which is also completely fab. I couldn't love Fine more.
Also, read bell hooks, Ain't I a Woman is great.
