Say hello to books on Gender Studies at Amazon
Get ready for some of the most liberating, horrifying, and according to some people, even scandalous tales of gender inequality, homosexuality, and other such gender issues. These books make for a compelling read and force the readers to question the still existing insensitivity towards the female gender even in the present time. Certain books explain the many stereotypes that exist like why men can’t multi task, fail in their attempts at lying to women, have a fascination for erotic images and their perpetual disregard for advice.
In the 21st century, when mankind has set foot on the moon and is achieving new technological feats every day, to discriminate with an entire gender is something which has to be condemned but unfortunately there still exists a very strong sense of gender discrimination in most of the regions of the world. Not only issues like equal pay opportunities, equal work opportunities but restrictions on women to go out and work still exist in many parts. It is a disappointment that we still have to deal with such issues. ‘Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead’ by Sheryl Sandberg is one such book that explores the issue of gender equality and the preconceptions pull back women from realizing their full potential and reaching the top. It gives an insight as to why there are only 18 female CEO’s in the Fortune 500 companies or why only about 22 women are heads of state out of 197 countries. Another inspiring story is ‘I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban’ by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb. This book outlines the story of Malala, a girl who symbolizes the universal right of education for all and was shot for advocating the same. This well written narrative of Malala’s life in the Taliban controlled Swat valley will give you an insight into how deep the issue of gender inequality goes.
This page also has a number of fascinating and mesmerizing tales, personal accounts of the severe injustices faced by women in different societies and the measures- some successful and some in vain that they took to live in a better world. One such gripping tale is ‘Princess’ by Jean Sasson, an unbelievable tale in the life of a Saudi Arabian woman, the sheer atrocities which she had to face, how she was just a son bearing device, and the improbable things which she sees, from the killing of young girls to even darker secrets of this society where human rights violation is like a trip to the washroom. Other such gripping tales includes the sequel to ‘Princess’- ‘Daughters of Arabia’, Betty Mahmoody’s ‘Not Without My Daughter’ – her real life account of how she and her daughter finally managed to escape after under the false pretence of meeting her husband’s family they were brought to Iran and were later made prisoners of this foreign culture & ‘The Truth about Me’ by A. Revathi and V. Geetha, ‘The Underground Girls Of Kabul: The Hidden Lives of Afghan Girls Disguised as Boys’ by Jenny Nordberg amongst other such stellar pieces of work.
