+20 Free Feminist Books [PDF]

Each of the books that we present in our list is in PDF format for your convenience.

What we know as feminism is a political and social movement that emerged during the late 18th century. At that time, it had not been assigned the name “feminism”, but it involved women becoming aware, as a collective group, of the rights they did not enjoy because of their sex. This prompted them to act to achieve the necessary transformations in society.

Since the initiative taken at the end of the 18th century by a group of women, the feminist movement took shape and became legalized worldwide. This has led to several changes in favor of women, who have since gained some rights they did not have before, such as the right to education in some regions, the right to vote, professional equality, among others.

We have included texts in Spanish and Portuguese, so you can decide in which language you want to enjoy your reading. On the other hand, it is important to note that all the books in our selection are in the public domain or have been made available for free distribution.

In our select list of more than 20 feminist books in PDF format, you will learn about the history of this movement, as well as the regions in which they have achieved political and social changes. You will also learn about concepts, names and laws related to the subject.
