Here are some other good books not included in the Bible.
You by Caroline Kepnes might be what you're looking for. For We Are Many by Stuart Thaman is a more supernatural suspense thriller. Lastly, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is incredible.
Here are some books I think might give you a taste of what kinds of sexist stuff women have to put up with regularly:
The last one is perhaps the farthest stretch, but I do think it's a lot about how women are made to comform to roles, as well as all the little ways men might dominate women, and plays with the usual perceptions of that. Maybe read it after you've read a lot of the other works so you're more familiar with the everyday struggles of women, otherwise it might not be as poignant to read as a guy.
Anyways, I'm glad that there are guys like you out there who are more open to learning about this stuff.
I'm in the middle of 5 different books because I am a bit of a moody reader (sometimes I'm in the mood to read something funny, other times I want something mysterious, something informative, something that will give me second hand embarrassment, etc.)
Currently I'm reading:
Picked up reading in the process of getting through a shitty situation. It's helped me a ton.
The book is a truly fascinating and disturbing psychological thriller. Not necessarily what you would expect from this one quoted section that received media attention. I never saw the movie.

To help her create, balance, and contextualize all the new relationships she'll be forming in college: Sex God by Rob Bell and The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman (Both of these books will affect how a person approaches relationships with family, friends, and lovers. Can't recommend these enough.)
To encourage some introspection: Wild by Cheryl Strayed
Guilty pleasure: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn or The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson or The Secret History by Donna Tartt
And to promote the journey of becoming her own person: The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand and On the Road by Jack Kerouac
The book is cheap on amazon; that said, I'd recommend against it...
You've already subjected yourself to the movie, no need to read the book just to throw it across the room when you are done reading.
