What is Feminist Book Fortnight all about?
Feminist Book Fortnight
Last year over 50 independent bookshops around the UK and Ireland launched Feminist Book Fortnight, a celebration of feminist books. Independent bookshops around the country highlighted the diversity of women’s writing over the two weeks. It was a great success demonstrating a thirst for discussion of feminist issues as well as a wider celebration of women writers.
