How about magazines? I have been a subscriber to Ms. almost from the beginning!
=======================================
Bella Abzug : how one tough broad from the Bronx fought Jim Crow and Joe McCarthy, pissed off Jimmy Carter, battled for the rights of women and workers, rallied against war and for the planet, and shook up politics along the way : an oral history / by Suzanne Braun Levine and Mary Thom.
by Levine, Suzanne.
New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2007.
Description: xxx, 320 p., [16] p. of plates : ill. ; 22 cm.

Edition: 1st ed.

Summary: For more than fifty years, Bella Abzug championed the powerless and disenfranchised, as an activist, congresswoman, and leader in every major social initiative of her time--from Zionism and labor in the 40s to the ban-the-bomb efforts in the 50s, to civil rights and the anti-Vietnam War movements of the 60s, to the women's movement in the 70s and 80s, to environmental awareness and economic equality in the 90s. Her political idealism never waning, Abzug gave her final public speech before the U.N. in March 1998, just a few weeks before her death. Presented in the voices of both friends and foes, of those who knew, fought with, revered, and struggled alongside her, this oral biography is the first comprehensive account of a woman who was one of our most influential leaders.--From publisher description.

Which good books or poems have you read that have a strong "feminist" (female empowerment) message?
