OCTOBER-NOVEMBER BOOK

Hood Feminism
Mikki Kendall

Today's feminist movement has a glaring blind spot, and paradoxically, it is women. Mainstream feminists rarely talk about meeting basic needs as a feminist issue, argues Kendall, but food insecurity, access to quality education, safe neighborhoods, a living

wage, and medical care are all feminist issues.

All too often, however, the focus is not on

basic survival for the many, but on increasing

privilege for the few. 

How can we stand in solidarity as a movement, Kendall asks,

when there is the distinct likelihood that some women are

oppressing others?

We'll discuss this question and more at the first meeting, to be held

virtually on Thursday, November 5th from 7:30-8:30 PM. RSVP here

ABOUT THE BOOK CLUB

All are welcome to join our book club! We read one book every two months and alternate between week days and weekends so all members can attend. Books with feminist themes are chosen by a member vote, and we discuss and debate the works over snacks and beverages. It's fun, free, and socially distanced!

Join our Google Group or MeetUp Group for book club updates!
