Feminist Fiction Classics

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that every woman in possession of a good bookshelf must be in want of some brilliant books by women. 

And this curated collection of feminist fiction classics will add all the style and substance you need to that shelf. 

Whether you’re looking for empowerment, education or the sense that you’re not alone, these wonderful stories written by women help illuminate both the importance of womanhood and the different challenges faced by being female. 

They are bold statements of what it means to be a woman in a world where we’re still so often considered “other”.

And while they generally offer an uncoloured view of the female condition, they also celebrate female intellect, strength and friendships.

Our carefully curated collection stretches back to classics such as Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Anne Brontë's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and continues up through the years taking in powerful reads such as The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins GilmanThe Color Purple by Alice Walker and The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
