Feminist Reading Group

For this meeting of Feminist Reading Group we’ll be discussing Excluded: Making Feminist and Queer Movements More Inclusive by Julia Serano.

The 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. 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. We are committed to making this space safe; it is not like a class or other institutional structure, based on hierarchies of knowledge or experience. We don’t convert or correct each other — each person’s agency is protected. We support and celebrate our different forms of creativity, expression, and expertise. All who wish to join us in this spirit are welcome.

Reading the entirety of the book is not necessary.

Eileen Ybarra is a Chicana feminist librarian who is passionate about books and feminist community. She is also a writer and mindfulness meditation instructor.
