Women empowering reads: Recommendations by Femme Palette members

At the end of January, I organized a book club for FP members in Prague. In the second half of the evening, everyone pitched in with their top book picks for empowering women. Originally, I thought we would vote and share only the most popular ones, but the night unfolded differently. What transpired was a vibrant exchange of ideas, demonstrating the importance of embracing different outlooks. It became clear that relying solely on the majority vote wouldn't capture the essence of the varied and empowering experiences shared. So, without further ado, explore below a kaleidoscopic list of books, each in its own way contributing to the empowerment of women.
