Reading project, week ending 30 Jun 2019

What have I read this week?

The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love by bell hooks

This is a feminist nonfiction book about masculinity and how men need to learn to love themselves and others in order to become fully realised humans and counteract patriarchal expectations and structures. I found this very interesting, and I definitely want to read more of hooks’ work.

Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge

This is a nonfiction book about race and feminism in Britain. I found it really interesting and it definitely resonated with me. It’s also a little depressing, because it shows how much work needs to be done in regards to combating racism here in the UK.
