Feminist Reading Group

For our April meeting of Feminist Reading Group, we’ll take a look at a few current articles that address the theme of this quarter’s programming at the WCCW (“Health/Care”). Here are the links are to the readings we’ll discuss:

adrienne maree brown, “Love as Political Resistance”

Laurie Penny, “Life-Hacks of the Poor and Aimless”

Abeni Jones, “Beyond Self-Care Bubble Baths: A Vision for Community Care”

Please bring a small snack for potluck if you can, and maybe a question or comment from one or more of the articles to keep the discussion moving. We’re looking forward to seeing you!

The Feminist Reading Group is a community working to understand ourselves, the worlds we occupy, and the texts we read in deep, truthful, respectful, and joyful ways. The group meets monthly to explore many themes: feminist histories, race, class, gender, space, sexuality, art-making, culture, creative practices, relationship, conflict, globalism, family, colonialism, media, aging, work, organizing, reading, politics, writing, activism, and technology, among others. Members are invited to participate in an open process of sharing, to be generous and honest with ourselves and others through our thoughts and actions, when speaking and when listening.
