Emma Watson’s Feminist Book Club to Read Caitlin Moran’s ‘How to Be a Woman’

By Maryann Yin Comment

Caitlin Moran Book (GalleyCat)Emma Watson has named How To Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran as the April 2016 pick for Our Shared Shelf. Ebury Press, a Penguin Random House U.K. imprint, released this nonfiction book back in June 2011.

Here’s an excerpt from Watson’s announcement on Goodreads: “I read it on a plane from London to New York and I laughed out loud and cried so much I think the whole of my cabin, airline staff included, thought I was losing my mind. (For speedy readers out there, I am also going to read Moranifesto).”

In the past, this feminist book club has read My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem, The Color Purple by Alice Walker, and All About Love: New Visions by bell hooks. What books would you recommend to Watson for future selections?
