Histories of Feminist Co-Struggle — CANCELLED

Our apologies, this workshop has been cancelled due to a scheduling change with the programmer. Please check back as we will probably offer again at another time!

Friday, March 3rd, 1-4pm
$20 member/$25 regular

It can be hard to find points of access into histories of feminism. Where do you start? Mainstream narratives often gloss over points of conflict, areas of difference, trajectories of internal struggle–or those strands of feminist movement can be blown out of proportion and used to misrepresent the goals of feminist organizing. This three-hour workshop will cover non-mainstream stories of feminist struggle from within, from the so-called first wave in the late nineteenth century through the blind spots of white and marketplace feminisms of today. The format will be primarily lecture-based–with slides!–and participants will receive three handmade booklets to take away: one on consciousness-raising, one on feminist keywords (with explanations and guides to further reading), and the last a journal for exploring personal relationships to feminist ideas and questions. Dawn Finley, co-founder of the Feminist Library On Wheels, will lead the workshop, based on materials found in our collection. Participants will also be able to sign up for a F.L.O.W. card and check out books! All proceeds from the workshop support the WCCW and F.L.O.W.

Dawn Finley is co-founder of the Feminist Library On Wheels (F.L.O.W.), a caregiver, new dog guardian, and academic expat.

 While most WCCW programming is free or donation-based, with no one turned away for lack of funds, we do offer some workshops that have fees associated. This covers materials and allows us to pay the leaders of these workshops for their time and expertise, and to put a small percentage back into WCCW. This income, in addition to memberships, is what lets us keep the doors open and the lights on. We want to make programming as accessible as possible to anyone who is interested though, so we also offer volunteer opportunities and free community tickets to each event or workshop (number varies depending on capacity of the class).
