It’s International Women’s Day!

March 8, 2019

 

Happy International Women’s Day!

Today we are recognising the fierce, fabulous, funny, fantastic females in our lives.

This year’s theme is #BalanceforBetter and we couldn’t agree more that a balanced world is a better world.

To celebrate, we’ve pulled together a list of our favourite books about (and from) women. They cover the topics of feminism, women in the workplace, reproductive rights and so much more. See our list below!

We’re also running a giveaway on our Facebook page which includes some of these fantastic titles. Head to Pan Macmillan Australia’s Facebook to find out how to enter!
