Untamed by Glennon Doyle

Glennon Doyle denied her own discontent for many years. While speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fall in love. This voice that told her that she was the one was a voice she had buried beneath decades addictions, cultural conditioning, and institutional allegiances. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be.

Glennon then decided that it was enough and instead of keep abandoning herself, she abandoned the world’s expectations of her. In this story, the reader will navigate around how a responsible mother is not the one that slowly dies for her children, will see divorce and how to form a blended new family, and more. This is simply a story that will teach us how to leave through the live of Glennon Doyle.

The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepone

The Secret History of Wonder Woman is a tour of intellectual and cultural history. Wonder Woman, Jill Lepore argues, is the missing link in the history of the struggle for women’s rights—a chain of events that begins with the women’s suffrage campaigns of the early 1900s and ends with the troubled place of feminism a century later.

The origins of Wonder is a tale of drama, intrigue, and irony. In the 1920s, Marston and his wife brought into their home Olive Byrne. Even while celebrating a conventional family life in a regular column for the Family Circle, they themselves pursued lives of extraordinary nonconformity. Marston, internationally known as an expert on truth spilled all of them on the pages of Wonder Woman. I watched part of the movie, but I will so read this book soon to know more about my favorite heroine!

Mrs. Dalloway by Victoria Woolf

It is to be known as Virginia Woolf’s greatest novel! A vivid portrait of a single day in a woman’s life, Mrs. Clarissa Dalloway. She is preoccupied with the last-minute details of party preparation while in her mind she is something much more than a perfect society hostess because while getting ready she reexamines the choices that brought her there, hesitantly looking ahead to the unfamiliar work of growing old.

Virginia Woolf, in her work “A Room of One’s Own”, argues the need of women to have their own room, their own economic independence. Here, we see how the portrayal of a socialite, a perfect women, is brought down by a live of regrets and ifs.
