I think that all books that treat the concerns/thoughts/goals/desires/experiences of teenage girls as important are inherently feminist. That means books about crushes and making out and make up. It’s one of my favorite things about YA that it can be dominated by female authors and female characters. I mean the fact that strong female fantasy leads is considered an overused trope is pretty awesome. Obviously there are problematic books and gender inequalities in how authors are treated and lots of other issues … but, for now, here are some of my favorite overtly feminist YA novels. Please share your thoughts or your own feminist YA recs with me in the comments. And happy Tuesday!
