What A Girl Wants

Feminist Is Not A Dirty Word is the latest in the What A Girl Wants series by Colleen Mondor at Chasing Ray.

What A Girl Wants began in June 2009, and is a series of interviews with authors about the "current status of books for teen girls and what it says about both what they want to read and what publishers think they want to read." Topics since then have covered everything from mysteries to favorite books to recommendations to the most recent entry, about feminism.

I cannot believe I haven't linked to this series before! If you've been reading it, you know how great and in depth it is, with an amazing array of authors. If you haven't been reading it, start now! You'll feel as if Colleen invited all these women to her house, and you're invited, also, and now you're sitting around drinking wine, eating good cheese, and talking about bookish things.

This series is so great. I especially enjoyed 'Because we are not all rich girls' about encouraging diversity of economic background in YA.

Colleen, it's been such a cool series and I love going back and rereading past posts.

Jodie, I think that is my favorite. Not just diverse economic backgrounds, but economic backgrounds done with respect. Must go reread that.
