The Fictional Woman by Tara Moss
This book takes a look at numerous issues including the under-representation of women, modern motherhood, sexual violence, body image, and the portrayal of women in politics, entertainment, advertising and the media.
The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf
Wolf argues that female beauty standards have become increasingly stringent as women have gained increasing power in an effort to minimise female power and influence. This book has a strong feminist angle in its examination of five key areas: work, religion, sex, violence, and hunger.
The Natural Way Of Things by Charlotte Wood
A gripping fictional tale of female friendship and courage which simultaneously shines a light on contemporary misogyny and corporate power.
