2020 RISE: A Feminist Booklist for Young Readers!
Source: School Library Journal
Rise: A Feminist Book Project For Ages 0-18—formerly known as the Amelia Bloomer Project—has released its Top 10 list for 2020. The group, which is part of the Feminist Task Force (FTF) of the Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) of the American Library Association, annually releases the best feminist books for young readers.
This year's choices are:
Shout by Laurie Halse Anderson
What Do You Do with a Voice Like That?: The Story of Extraordinary Congresswoman Barbara Jordan by Chris Barton, illustrated by Ekua Holmes
Rise! From Caged Bird to Poet of the People, Maya Angelou by Bethany Hegedus, illustrated by Tonya Engel
We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia
The Proudest Blue: A Story of Hijab and Family by Ibtihaj Muhammad with S.K. Ali, illustrated by Hatem Aly
A Boy Like You by Frank Murphy illustrated by Kayla Harren
Forward Me Back to You by Mitali Perkins
Thirteen Doorways Wolves Behind Them All by Laura Ruby
At the Mountain's Base by Traci Sorell, illustrated by Weshoyot Alvitre
Surviving the City, Vol. 1 by Tasha Spillett and Natasha Donovan
Rise also offers a longer list of feminist fiction and nonfiction recommendations from early readers to YA.
The organization's name change was explained on the website: "This year, the committee was made aware that, though Amelia Bloomer had a platform as a publisher, she refused to speak against the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 (Simmons). SRRT and FTF believe librarians and libraries must work to correct social problems and inequities with particular attention to intersectionality, feminism, and deliberate anti-racism.
"As a result, the committee unanimously voted in favor of a name change. Rise: A Feminist Book Project for Ages 0-18, reflects the diversity and inclusion for which feminism as a whole — and this committee specifically—strives."
Read the full announcement of the inaugural Rise list below:
We are now Rise: A Feminist Book Project for ages 0-18.
It’s time to remember. Read. Reflect. Rage. Reclaim. Resolve. Rebuild.
It’s time to inspire. Imagine. Illuminate. Ignite. Innovate.
It’s time to speak. Sing. Shout. Support. Smash. Slay.
It’s time to engage. Enrich. Enlighten. Elevate. Elect. Empathize. Expand.
With Laurie Halse Anderson’s Shout and Laura Ruby’s Thirteen Doorways, Wolves Behind Them All, we remember. We reflect on things that have been taken. We rage against it, and we reclaim it. We resolve to recognize our fear and step out of our comfort zones; as Alice Tapper says in Raise My Hand: “I want to raise my hand, but sometimes it’s too scary.” But we challenge ourselves to do it anyway.
In What Do You Do With a Voice Like That (Barton), we are inspired by Barbara Jordan’s voice and her determination to use it. We Set the Dark on Fire (Mejia) ignites the fight for ourselves and others. Strange Birds (Perez) demands institutional change. In Fighter in Velvet Gloves (Boochever) , we watch Elizabeth Peratrovich challenge systemic racism.
In I Am The Night Sky (Next Wave Muslim Initiative), we celebrate the importance of speaking up and out, but not over. “They didn’t ask, but I had to tell them, I had to tell them what I was, who I was, an act of remembrance” (Noor Saleem). Bri in On The Come Up (Thomas) learns to speak through verse and rhyme, finding her own identity and moving people to action.
In Make Trouble (Richards), we learn the importance of engaging with the world around us to elevate marginalized voices. Forward Me Back to You (Perkins) empowers us to validate our pain and embrace our future.
“We remember it and we honor it by making our own voices heard” (Barton, What Do You Do With a Voice Like That).
