If you’re looking for a new book about a fiery, fun feminist, then the historical fiction work Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus is for you.
This book focuses on a single mom in the 1960s named Elizabeth Zott. Her baking show, which she named Lessons In Chemistry, inspires her audience of housewives to see the importance of intelligence and self confidence. She faces multiple instances of sexism and fights for herself every time.
Garmus’s novel sets itself apart from the rest because of the decade it is set in. Women were seen a certain way in the 1960’s, and Elizabeth fights to break the stereotypes.
All age and gender groups should read it to understand the importance of being a woman in the past.
It is available everywhere, but on high demand since it is new.
