3. THE AWAKENING - Kate Chopin
The age-old story of a woman realizing her worth and expressing her freedom from male influence... yet Kate Chopin published this novel in 1899. It was unheard of during the time, making Chopin predictably shunned and disliked.
This is a classic that everyone should read for early feminism. What is fantastic is that Chopin was actually surprised by that perspective.
Oh, the book? Just google the topic... you'll like it. I know you.
4.0 out of 5.0 In the Oceans.
