Amelia Bloomer Project

Every year since 2002 the Feminist Task Force of the American Library Association has released a bibliography of recommended feminist reading for birth through age 18. Called the Amelia Bloomer Project, the lists are available in both PDF and HTML formats.

This books are divided first by age (beginning readers, middle readers, and young adults) and then by fiction/non-fiction. Each listing includes a citation as well as very brief summary of the book’s content. A couple examples from 2010’s list are Bea Rocks the Flock (coincidentally sharing a name with my favorite Golden Girl), Sky High: The True Story of Maggie Gee, and Rapunzel’s Revenge.

This site would be especially useful to children’s and young adult librarians, as well as anyone wishing to locate feminist-positive books for young people.
