In this book list you’ll find that some are serious, some poetic, and some are silly. These titles feature a diverse cast of women whose voices reflect their own experiences, struggles, and triumphs. Their wider observations and commentary on society is described through the lens of their unique relationship with the world around them. They hit the “For All Babekind” vibe to us.
