Books unafraid to tackle difficult subjects, spurring increased awareness and discussion.

Me Too, Women’s Suffrage, Civil Rights, Reconciliation, Black Lives Matter, Yes to Marriage Equality – at the heart of every uprising against injustice are tough conversations that trigger realisations about the state of the world. And when the collective focus shifts to the issues that really matter, it can be incredible to witness a groundswell of support gaining momentum. Here are some books whose authors are lending their voices, stories and perspectives to some challenging but important conversations.
