A featured component of Zelophehad’s Daughters is our book club. We read fiction books that feature women and girls as main characters and that enable us to discuss social issues that impact women and girls globally. We also read autobiographies about women and other non-fiction books written by or about women and girls’ issues. We believe that girls who lead are girls who read. We also understand that books provide a platform for dialogue, engagement, exposure, and creativity without leaving the comfort of home.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.
Renowned hip-hop artist, political activist, and bestselling author Sister Souljah brings the streets of New York to life in a powerful and utterly unforgettable first novel.
I came busting into the world during one of New York’s worst snowstorms, so my mother named me Winter. Ghetto-born, Winter is the young, wealthy daughter of a prominent Brooklyn drug-dealing family. Quick-witted, sexy, and business-minded, she knows and loves the streets like the curves of her own body. But when a cold Winter wind blows her life in a direction she doesn’t want to go, her street smarts and seductive skills are put to the test of a lifetime. Unwilling to lose, this ghetto girl will do anything to stay on top.
