7 End-of-Summer Reads to #SmashThePatriarchy (or take with you to the beach): 

1. The Hot One

By Carolyn Murnick
This gripping memoir of friendship tells the story of two friends: one who was brutally murdered and the other determined to uncover the truth about her death. This tragic mystery is the ultimate page turner and perfect beach read, as much about a crime as it is about female friendship. 

2. Puss Puss Magazine 

Yep, it's a fashion magazine about cats. And cat-lovers. With an eclectic mix of photography, historical profiles, and articles, Puss Puss has featured creative minds from all over the world, including: Ai WeiWei, Gia Coppola and Ernest Hemingway (who had a cat colony!). #pussypower 

3. Dear Ijeawele

By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
What began as a letter to a friend on how to raise a feminist daughter is now a brilliant manifesto that lays out 15 steps we can take to incorporate feminism into our day-to-day lives. 

4. Qs From Frozen Eggs

By Susanna Fogel
This May Shouts & Murmurs column from the New Yorker is a letter from your frozen egg. Just read it. 

5. The Illustrated Woman

From Topics, Issue No. 2
Inspired by the creative, colorful, angry, and humorous posters we've seen at Women's Marches around the world -- as well as a new book documenting feminist protest art from the 70s and 80s -- the editors at Topic asked seven female artists to create political posters that represent the female experience today. 
6. Weird in A World that's Not
By Jennifer Romolini
Broke, divorced and a college-drop out, Romolini was perhaps not who you'd expect to rise to the top of the professional ladder. But over the course of a decade she worked her way up to editor-in-chief and CCO (now of Shonda Rhimes' digital storytelling initiative, Shondaland) and provides tips "for misfits, f*ckups and failures" on how to find your most productive, impressive self.
7. Feminist Fight Club
By Jessica Bennett
Out next month in paperback with an updated intro, Feminist Fight Club distills hard-hitting social science to provide practical tools for battling daily sexism that will also make you LOL. Inspired by the author's own feminist fight club (they fight patriarchy not each other), the book's illustrated, with a negotiation cheat sheet, a PSA for men, as well as tips on combatting mansplainers, manterrupters, and more.
