It seems like every day the Left is getting up in arms about something, and even books aren’t safe. Feminists, leftists, and liberals have started crusades to “prioritize female characters” and “female writers” as if female protagonists and female authors are an endangered species. Go to your bookshelf right now. I bet you won’t have a hard time finding a book by a female author, unless perhaps you’re a Classics major, but that’s a whole different issue. Here at FFL, we love empowering women, but we know that women are already empowered and working hard to empower themselves every day. We also love to promote reading and literacy, so we’ve compiled a list of twenty-five books with strong female leads written by strong female writers. So sit down with a good book and support your fellow woman.
