Next Wave: visions on feminism

First wave, second wave, third wave, no wave, next wave… Feminism comes in many shapes, visions and waves. One wave pushes the next wave on. Each new generation rides those waves in its own way, revolts against the established order and ruling ideas, exposes sensitivities and problems. And so feminism continues to meander through our lives: versatile, agile, contemporary.

Learn more about present-day feminism with these 25 non-fiction books, recommended by organisations in Brussels that are shaping the next wave. Delve into books that explain, underpin, complement or counter contemporary feminism. For beginners and veterans, and everything before, after and in between.

“Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.”
– Maya Angelou
