As the women of this generation, we are faced with a lot of challenges as we try to shift the cultures and beliefs that have existed over the centuries. The fight for woman rights started sometime back and it’s far from over. It is important to realize that despite the changes that have already occurred we still have a long way to go before the inferiority of the female gender is a thing of the past. Different authors have taken the initiative of educating today’s woman, motivating her and empowering her to be the best version of her with no apologies in order. Women, you can be whatever you want to be without any excuses. Here are the top 5 female empowerment books that every woman should take time to read.

#Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso

Girlboss is a book for the young woman who needs a push towards the right direction. Girlboss is a New York bestseller that explains the journey of Sophia Amoruso the CEO of Nasty Girl. From the streets to the fastest growing retailers in the world. Amoruso is the depiction of girl power and the embodiment of what determination, courage, and hard work. I basically believe that every woman is capable of doing what they set their minds too and this book proves that the education level does not matter. You don’t have to go to Harvard or university of Nairobi to successful. From a woman who was not raised to be the typical CEO, Girlboss id the definition of Women can run the world too.

Be Unapologetically You by Adeline Bird

Adeline Bird brings to the women of color Be Unapologetically You, a book that is a guide to self-love and self-worth. This book stripes down the lies and the misinformation that have been fed to women of color over the centuries. This is where you need to empower yourself as a woman, find your worth, wear your crown and be fierce in fighting for who you are. Self-love is about acceptance, belief in yourself, and the defiance of anything and everything that makes one feels unlovable. As a woman you hold the world in your arms and when you love yourself, you let others learn how to love themselves too.

Shonda Rhimes Year of Yes

Shonda Rhimes is one of the most celebrated women in Hollywood and in the Year of Yes she explains just like every other woman she too faces some challenges. In this book she speaks about the language of yes and how it changed her life. Saying No has its benefits and definitely helps in various ways but she explains how it also hindered her from exploring other options or facing her fears. No is a benefit when we don’t want to face the unknown but yes pushes us beyond our limits. Shonda Rhimes definitely puts as in the spot as woman and as a people, do we face our fears? How many times do we say yes to unknown or do we cower behind the normal and get content? Maybe 2020 should be the year of yes.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie –We should all be feminists

This is a book length essay by renowned author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie brings about the question of what is feminism. We should all be Feminists is a personal written essay that eloquently explains the different versions of what it mean to be a woman in the 21st century. The riveting read is full, of humor and offers a unique perspective to what women go through. She expounds on the marginalization of woman based on her own experiences while in native Nigeria, and her American outlook. The book explains why the gender divide affects woman more negatively and the realities of sexual politics. Chimamanda gives a depict description of what it means to be a woman today and explains why we should all be feminists.

Girl stop apologizing by Rachel Hollis

This book Girl stop Apologizing gives every woman the power to be who they want to be without any apology. It is an empowerment book that encourages every woman to be unshameful in their desires ad needs. Every woman should learn to embrace their inner selves and achieve their goals against all the odds. The book gives a shame-free plan to women to encourage them to chase their dreams and achieve their goals. I find the book absolutely amazing and the exact remedy for every woman who feels like they should be less ambitious, less meticulous in their planning, goals and achievements. Woman reach those great heights because you can.


Once again, I urge you to get buried into the above titles during this quarantine and your perspectives about, Girl Child, Girl power, Women’s rights, Women Empowerment as well the space for a woman in society will change tremendously.
