A Women's Day Bookshelf Experiment


Happy International Women's Day.

As an experiment, I checked my bookshelves for books written by female authors. Just so you know, my cabinets are enormous.

  1. Stephen Hawking by Kitty Ferguson
  2. The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
  3. Lajja by Taslima Nasreen
  4. Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi
  5. Harry Potter(All of them) by JK Rowling

That's very little out of a few hundred. I guess that this is what you would see at a bookshop as well. This is intensely sad. I gotta get me some Virginia Woolf.
