So far the reservations that have arrived are:

Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism
Female Chauvinist Pigs
The Female Eunuch
Bodily Harm
Mad Women: The Other Side of Life on Madison Avenue in the 1960's and beyond
The Second Sex
The Hite Report On the Family: Growing up under Patriarchy
The Feminine Mystique
Lines of Life: 101 Poems by 101 Women

If someone wouldn't mind, can you put these in a sort of 'order' to read for me? Since I'm fairly new to feminism I want to start with something basic and work my way up.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated..I know it's very late in the UK but I wanna start reading now! Lol!

I'd read Living Dolls first - it's an easy read, well written, gets the point across and is enjoyable. Mind you, it's also the only one I have from your list Smile

I also enjoyed The Equality Illusion - in an angry, must question everything and change the world for my daughters, kind of way.

The Female Eunuch- then you'll understand why old crones like me go on the way we do!

Okay starting with Living Dolls, then The Female Eunuch, then Feminine Mystique.

I'll come back in a few days when hopefully more of my books have come in! I'll let you know what I think. I have a feeling these book will extend my vocab ;-)
