Hot Topics: What is Feminism? Where is Feminism? Are we there yet?

Following from Stephanie Coontz’ talk at the September branch meeting about the strange stirrings of the early women’s movement we’ll bring our thoughts and experiences and get caught up on the current state of things. Are we better off than our mothers? Does feminism matter today? Which women can have it all? Which women are struggling to have just some of it? Are there any young feminists? What is post-feminism and how can we recognize it? Is feminism relevant? a dirty word? Come and discuss!

October 17,[masked] pm
Forza Coffee at Bridgeport and 27th St in University Place

Note: The group decided to meet in October at 4. If you can’t come at 4 and would like to attend hot topics at another time, e.g., lunchtime, contact Dorothy.

Reading to consider before the meeting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
