I couldn't find the title of the first to come to mind, sorry. Then I thought of Sojourner Truth's autobiography. (She never learned to read and write, but she dictated it and had it transcribed by various abolitionists) It's a good read. It also occurs to me that several of the Jane Austen novels, Sence and Sensibility in particular as well as Pride and Prejudice buth may qualify. In the realm of Sci Fi, several of the popular female writers love this theme. Marion Zimmer Bradley, Ursula K LeGuin, Anne McCaffery, and Mercedes Lackey all come to mind. If Sci Fi is an acceptable genre for your instructor (I'd ask first!) try Bradley's Hawkmistress or LeGuin's Always Coming Home. In mystery there's Laurie R King's alternate Sherlock Holmes series starting with the Beekeeper's Apprentice and including A Monstrous Regiment of Women. I also found an odd feminist streak in Thing's Fall Apart with the bit about the wife who had a double role as a witchdoctor, but it wasn't the central theme.

im not sure if these are what you're looking for, but feminist books i know are: The Color Purple by Alice Walker (? Cant remember) Their Eyes were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston Most feminist books ARE about sexual oppression... unless you mean sexual oppression as in rape and not gender subordination. Some feminist authors you can refer to are: Christine de Pizan (who wrote The Book of the City of Ladies) Virginia Woolf

You say you don't know the author, Lewis Carroll wrote "Alice" but it could be a book about Alice in wonderland by another author, so more info really is needed to find the exact book. I found one on Amazon that's an Alice in Wonderland w/brown cover and gold writing http://www.amazon.com/Annotated-Alice-De... but with books being reprinted, the book could be on Amazon, but with a different color cover. An author and a year could help a bit more. If I come up with anything, I will let you know.

It's a dark brown color, with the title in gold - Gramercy Classics Lewis Carroll: The Complete Illustrated Works. http://goo.gl/FShav This deluxe edition includes all of Carroll's major fiction and poetry, including Alice and Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, the facsimile of the manuscript of Alice's Adventures Under Ground in Carroll's handwriting and with his own drawings. Also included are a biographical chronology of Lewis Carroll's life, and a selected biography.
