Considerado como una biblia por una nueva generación de mujeres, Los monólogos de la vagina es un libro agudo eirreverente. La obra maestra de Ensler que da voz a las fantasías y los temores más profundos del sexo femenino. «Me preocupan las vaginas. Me preocupaba lo que pensamos sobre las vaginas, y lo que no pensamos acerca de ellas... De modo que decidí hablar a las mujeres acerca de sus vaginas, entrevistar a la vagina, y así comenzaron los monólogos de la vagina. »Hablé con más de doscientas mujeres. Hablé con mujeres ancianas, con mujeres jóvenes, casadas, solteras, profesoras, actrices, profesionales, afroamericanas, hispanas, asiáticas, judías... Al principio se mostraban renuentes, un poco tímidas. Pero una vez que empezaban, no había modo de que parasen.»

La casa de Bernarda Alba. Es la obra teatral dramática cumbre de Federico García Lorca. Subtitulada “Drama de mujeres en los pueblos de España”, completa la trilogía dramática iniciada con Bodas de sangre y Yerma. Terminada en 1936, poco antes de su violenta muerte, no pudo ser estrenada hasta 1945 en Buenos Aires. La obra refleja el despotismo conservador apabullante de una viuda frente a la rebeldía de sus hijas solteras cuando prende en ellas el deseo amoroso por un hombre, lo que provoca la tragedia. La zapatera prodigiosa. Estrenada por García Lorca en 1930 en Madrid, es un remedo de farsa o entremés. Se trata de la moza joven y de buen ver que se casa con un zapatero viejo y acomodado para tener protección y cobijo.

Los mejores libros jamás escritos. «Solo puedo hablar de la esclavitud en la medida en que la he observado yo mismo, en que la he conocido y experimentado en mi propia persona.» El mejor testimonio sobre la época más sombría de la historia estadounidense son las desgarradoras memorias de Solomon Northup, un afroamericano nacido como hombre libre en Nueva York. Las escribió después de haber pasado doce años esclavizado en varias plantaciones de Luisiana. Corría el año 1841 cuando fue engañado, secuestrado y vendido. Desapareció sin dejar rastro. Su testimonio viene introducido en esta edición por el revelador estudio de la docente e investigadora Marta Puxan-Oliva. Así, Doce años de esclavitud ha perdurado como una crónica sobre el mal y el lado oscuro del ser humano, pero nos lega también un bello tratado acerca de la amistad y de la superación. Steve McQueen dijo... «Un libro tan importante como el Diario de Ana Frank, pero publicado casi cien años antes.»

Rachel Hollis, autora del superventas y fundadora de TheChicSite.com, exhorta a las mujeres a dejar de disculparse por sus deseos, esperanzas y sueños y, en cambio, perseguirlos con pasión y confianza. Rachel ha sido testigo con frecuencia de mujeres que tienen temor de lograr sus propios objetivos. Temen pasar vergüenza, no alcanzar la perfección o no ser lo suficientemente valiosas. Pero el mayor temor de todos es ser juzgadas por el solo hecho de tener una ambición. Habiendo aprendido a definirse a sí mismas a la luz de otras personas –ya sea como esposas, madres, hijas o amigas– muchas mujeres han olvidado quiénes son en realidad y quiénes deberían ser. En este libro la celebridad emprendedora en línea, Rachel Hollis, alienta a las mujeres a ser dueñas de sus esperanzas, deseos y metas, y les recuerda que no tienen que pedir permiso para desear alcanzar más. Con un llamado a las mujeres de todo el mundo para que no dejen de hablar de sus sueños, Hollis identifica las excusas de las que tienen que liberarse, los comportamientos que deben adoptar y las habilidades que necesitan adquirir, en el camino hacia el crecimiento, la confianza y la mejor versión de sus vidas.
