Amelia Bloomer

We just got word of another important list of awards for our books: The Amelia Bloomer Project list, a yearly round-up of strong feminist works. Here is what the project is all about:

“In an effort both to alert readers to society’s opposition toward women’s equality and to highlight progress toward this vital goal, the 2010 Amelia Bloomer Project members selected 54 books notable for feminist content, quality of writing, and appeal to young readers.”

And congratulations to the authors, editors, and contributors to the following books!

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley (Delacorte Press)

Mare’s War by Tanita S. Davis (Alfred A. Knopf)

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn (Alfred A. Knopf)

The Road of Lost Innocence by Somaly Mam (Spiegel & Grau)

The Secret Keeper by Mitali Perkins (Delacorte)
