International Feminist ‘Oscars’ Awarded

At the world’s biggest book fair in Germany last week, 23 feminist writers were awarded the first “Women’s Book Oscars.”

An international panel chose non-fiction books that have “changed the world over the past 25 years.” Feminist classics such as Germaine Greer’s “The Female Eunuch,” Kate Millet’s “Sexual Politics” and Gloria Steinem’s “Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions” were among the winners.

For its first year, the panel of women from seven countries decided to honor a wide range of authors. In the future, the panel will pick one winner a year.
