March 8th is “la Journée internationale des droits des femmes”.
To celebrate this very important day, I made a special episode for you.
Today, I’m sharing 6 awesome feminist books in French: 2 bandes dessinées, a non-fiction “essai”, an adventure story, a book about periods (yes, THAT period) and a list of jobs for girls who don’t want to become princesses.
You’ll discover new writers, heroines and ideas for all ages and genders.
You’ll also find most of these books in your own language, if you’re not yet ready to read a full book in French. 🙂
Hope you like this episode as much as I enjoyed preparing it.
