Top ten books on the struggle against gender-based inequality

Rachel Holmes's new book, Eleanor Marx: A Life, is a biography on the daughter of Karl Marx.

One of her top ten feminist books, as shared at the Guardian:
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft (1792)

This principled, logical tract is an inspiration for three centuries of subsequent human rights thinking. Wollstonecraft identifies natural rights as inalienable and God-given. So they cannot be denied to any group in society by another. Enemies of the Human Rights Act, please note.
Read about another book on the list.
