Feminist Library 2020

At Oiselle HQ (fondly called "The Nest"), we have a Feminist Library where we share and suggest reads to each other. We’re happy to share our library with you, as well as the women's sports newsletters and podcasts on women's sports that keep us informed, energized, and pushing for positive change. If you have a strong suggestion for addition, feel free to write in to Happy reading, listening, and supporting!
