March 8th is International Women’s Day! For the rest of Women’s History Month, consider reading literature written by women. Here are some novels, poetry collections, and essay anthologies that are worth reading this month, and all year long!

 


Citizen (2014) — Claudia Rankine

 
 

“How difficult is it for one body to feel the injustice wheeled at another? Are the tensions, the recognitions, the disappointments, and the failures that exploded in the riots too foreign?”


Citizen is a genre-blending collection of poetry, essays, political criticism, and visual art.
