Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay
Read when you feel like a failure in every way:
You've probably heard of Bad Feminist, and there's a reason for that. Roxane Gay's spectacular collection of essays spans modern-day issues, from Girls to Chris Brown to her own personal evolution as a woman of color. It talks about how we're winning at feminism as a society, and how we're very much losing — and how we should go about fixing that.
