Ladies who love to read, watch, listen and consume thoughtfully — we get you. We live in a society driven by digital consumption:  YouTube videos, Snapchat, Insta stories, news feeds etc. So, let's switch up the narrative on what we consume and dig a little deeper than your everyday scroll session. This year, we are committing to consuming self-identified female written books, podcasts, movies and TV shows that uphold Syzygy's core mission: creating a space for a union of opposites. 

To kick-off the year, check -out Syzygy's book recommendations below.

 

 

Feminist Fight Club: A Survival Manual for a Sexist Workplace by Jessica Bennet

Looking for a guidebook to combat and navigate sexism in the workplace? This is it.  This book is filled with stories, no b*llshit advice, tactics to tackle things like asking for a raise and SO MUCH MORE. It's the ultimate reference for any woman in the workplace. 

 
 

Fun Home: A Family Tragicom by Alison Bechdel

A poignant graphic novel depicting a young woman's story of unraveling her identity, sexuality and complicated relationship with her father. It is equal parts thought provoking and stimulating. 

 
 

Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge

Named one of the “most important” books of 2017, award-winning journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge details her frustration about the way race is talked about in Britain and who is often leading those conversations (hint: mostly by those who aren't directly affected by it). We consider this an essential read this year. 

 
 

Hunger by Roxanne Gay

Who's read Bad Feminist by Roxanne Gay? We've read and re-read it. And we can't wait to read Hunger. We've heard the prose and poetry in this memoir will leave you thinking about this memoir well beyond the final page.
