Feminism Books in terms of Multicultural Perspectives & PSU WRC

I'm sitting down on a couch at Portland State University Women's Resource Center, located on Park ave & Montgomery St.

This is a really good place to sit down, listening slow music and reading books under the full atmosphere of women's power.

Today, I found some books that are written by divers women around the world. There are 6 shelves in this center and sections are quite well divded by topics such as gender, health, feminism, magazines and so forth.

Hope this list of assorted books about multicultural women that I would love to introduce to all would be helpful for PW members who are looking for multicultural women's beautiful stories and effort to empower women in the world.
