Last Saturday marked the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March in Washington. From the #MeToo movement that ousted the likes of Harvey Weinstein and, to women running for public office in record-breaking numbers and Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes, a lot has happened since that moment. But one thing that has been made abundantly clear is that there is a huge resistance movement and in 2018, it’s only getting stronger.
With an increase in visibility for women and social justice issues across the board, we’re so excited that the world of publishing and literature is following along. This year, there will be more books than ever being published on resistance, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, intersectionality, immigration, and so much more. We thought we’d give you a preview of six of the best resistance books coming out in 2018 – and because it’s always good to look at where you came from, we also have six classic books of rebellion and resistance.
