To Be A Difficult Woman

During Women’s History Month, we usually celebrate women who have made significant contributions to society like Hillary Clinton, Shirley Chisholm, Dolores Huerta and countless other women.  I recently read Roxanne Gay’s latest book, Difficult Women.  This work of short stories explores the different lives of women you will never hear about in a history book.  These women are considered on the edge of society or eccentric.  Many of them are people we may know, like our mothers, sisters, wives, co-workers, who don’t live perfect lives.

I really loved this book.  In fact, I read it in two days!  Check out this interview with the author.
