Feminism in the future

In Women's History Month, here are three books about how feminism might look moving forward.

Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions (Knopf) by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a refreshingly straightforward series of short essays from the award-winning novelist (Americanah) to a friend looking for advice about raising a daughter.

The Mother of All Questions (Haymarket Books) by Rebecca Solnit is a followup to her bestseller, Men Explain Things to Me, with insightful, often witty essays about the masculine literary canon, misogyny and violence, the history of rape jokes and more.

Why I Am Not A Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto (Melville House) by Jessa Crispin rejects contemporary feminism as ineffectual and issues a manifesto for a new movement that will take a wrecking ball to the glass ceiling.

Colette Bancroft, Times book editor
