What, all of them?

Would it reflect reality at all if every woman featured in a novel was a feminist?

There are plenty of books about strong women.

Id love one character to be well. Normal.

There was a guest blog a little while back from an author asking "can chick lit be feminist?".

Although when I read the title I thought you meant they should go to more balls with ballgowns and dancing and polite-yet-pointed conversation grin

Or be a bit of a feminist.

Its always the same man treats woman like crap, she simpers and lets him walk all over her.

Or always hang out for the unavailable man who is gorgeous but aloof.

They need to grow a pair get a career, and build lives of their own, get mates go to classes alone. If these women where on the relationship board there eoukd be choruses of ltb..

I need more feminist books to read
