O’Connell Pearson -- This book explores the forgotten heroines of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), a group of over 1,000 young women who transported planes, towed supply gliders behind enemy lines and served as flight instructors. Pearson highlights the courage and tenacity that bound them together, as they endured gender discrimination and harassment throughout their service.
Racial Profiling: Everyday Inequality, by Alison Behnke -- Examining both historic roots and current events, Behnke takes a clear stance that “whether implicit or explicit, individual or institutional, racial profiling leaves deep psychological scars among its victims, hinders the social and economic opportunities of people of color, and creates deep mistrust and fear at all levels of society.”
