Women's History Month Listenables | Audible Ambassadors, March [ad]

It's a brand new month -- a brand new season, even (my favorite!) -- and it's time for a brand new post from my Audible series! This month, in honor of Women's History Month, I thought we'd take a look at some of the many great audiobooks on theme this month, many of which are either on my own to-read list, or are personal favorites.
Check out some of my picks below, and leave me your suggestions in the comments!


If you're really wanting to dive into the whole "Women's History Month" thing, you might want to check out some of the hallmarks: explorations of feminism and gender, like the classic The Feminine Mystique, or this collection of essays from Gloria Steinem (or anything else by her, obviously), or more modern examinations, like Roxanne Gay's popular Bad Feminism, or Caitlin Moran's How to be a Woman. Or maybe you're interested in general non-fiction that's not necessarily of a feminist slant, but is just plain intriguing, like America's Women, a look at 400 years worth of lives and changes in what it means to be an American woman.

But of course, there are as many ways to approach Women's History Month reading as there are days in Women's History Month (and I'm sure, many more).

Maybe you're interested in amazing works of literature by women -- there's a whole host of classics written by women, but I'm going to recommend my personal favorites: those written by Edith Wharton, Kate Chopin, L.M. Montgomery, and of course, my beloved Jane Austen.
How could you go wrong with any of them?
Or maybe more recent classics interest you, like the popular (Claire Danes' narrated!) The Handmaid's Tale (a personal favorite, although it's always felt a little too potentially real for comfort...), or basically anything by Margaret Atwood (she's a fave!) or Toni Morrison (ditto!) I don't hesitate to call the works of either author classics, no matter how recent.

If you're more interested in something a little out of the box, maybe something like The Supergirls -- a look at fashion, feminism and more, through the lens of comic book heroines! -- might appeal to you? Or the audio of Hidden Figures, the box office-smashing story of the black, female mathematicians who helped launch us into space.

As for myself, you can probably guess some of the books on my own to-read (or listen to) list: Amanda Palmer's The Art of Asking has been drawing my eyes to its spot on my shelves for a couple of years now, and the idea of reading it while listening to Amanda narrate it is pretty damn appealing. And of course, I've mentioned numerous times that Amy Poehler's Yes Please is on my to-listen list, and her buddy Tina Fey's Boysspants is right there with it. I'm also pretty curious about Anna Kendrick's Scrappy Little Nobody, so I guess I'm in a 'funny female celeb memoirs' type of mood. . .  (So maybe Talking as Fast as I Can or The Princess Diarist would also fit the bill!)

So. What's on YOUR Women's History Month list? Did you read or listen to anything special this month, or are you planning to? I know we're close to the end of the month now, but honestly... it's never too late for one of these potentially excellent reads/listens!

Leave your recommendations, faves, and own to-be-read list in the comments! I'd love to hear it.

And remember, if you're interested in any of the books I mentioned, you can try one of them out, absolutely free, as part of a FREE 30-day trial from Audible! Sweet!
