Reflect & Resist: Books To Read During The Continued Fight


As we continue to educate and reflect over these first 100 days, the Women’s March team wants us to commit ourselves to continue focusing on what is currently going on and how we can educate others to be more tolerant. So part of the 10 Actions/100 Days campaign, we are one Action 5: Reflect & Resist. This action is asking us to read and talk about what we have read with others:

Action five is designed to educate some, and refresh others, through study, reflection, and courageous conversations, so that we can all be empowered by, and learn from, the work of activists who came before us, while being mindful not to perpetuate the mistakes of the past. Community is key to activism, so bring your huddles, neighbors, and your march partners back together, collectively choose a book or article to read, or film to watch. Take time to reflect and, together, discuss the topics that they highlight and the issues that women experiencing multiple forms of oppression have faced and continue to face. Below, we’ve selected five titles from each category to help you get started. We encourage you to choose a resource you feel will challenge you most.”

A lot of these books, articles, and movies focus on the feminist movement. But books that and articles that get the conversation going I believe are ideal for this action. So here are the campaign’s suggestions to help you get started:
