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.

In celebration of Women’s History Month in March, here is a short compilation of literary works written by women. This list is by no means comprehensive and, unfortunately, mentions only a small portion of the underrepresented female voices within literature. This list includes a mixture of both contemporary and classic literature. It features stories that are about women and written by women.


A Room of One’s Own (1929) by Virginia Woolf

A Room of One’s Own is an extended essay written by Virginia Woolf that examines both the physical and metaphorical place for women within literature.
