Waiting on Wednesday was created by Breaking the Spine, and is now hosted by Wishful Endings (as Can’t Wait Wednesday). It’s a feature where they discuss one of the most anticipated upcoming book releases. The anticipated book release is What Every Girl Should Know by J. Albert Mann!
Margaret was determined to get out. She didn’t want to clean the dirty dishes and soiled diapers that piled up day in and day out in her large family’s small home. She didn’t want to disappoint her ailing mother, who cared tirelessly for an ever-growing number of children despite her incessant cough. And Margaret certainly didn’t want to be labeled a girl of “promise,” destined to become either a teacher or a mother—which seemed to be a woman’s only options.
As a feisty and opinionated young woman, Margaret Higgins Sanger witnessed and experienced incredible hardships, which led to her groundbreaking work as an advocate for women’s rights and the founder of Planned Parenthood. This fiery novel of Margaret’s early life paints the portrait of a young woman with the passion and courage to change the world.
Why I’m Waiting
Historical Fiction has become my new favorite genre especially since reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and the book that is on the top of my TBR list which is Next Year in Havana! I am glad to see another historical fiction novel popping up this year and not only is it historical fiction, but it’s also a feminist read!
Once I read that it’s about the young Margaret Sander’s who is the founder of Planned Parenthood, I was completely sold! I just listened to 90’s Bitch through Audible and loved it so much that it left me craving for another good feminist book! Mann’s novel looks like the kind of book that will inspire women to fight for what they believe in and it is also the perfect book to gear up for Women’s History month!
