The East Bay Feminist Book Club is a social group open to people of all genders, sexes, and orientations who want to expand their knowledge about feminism and women's rights issues. We will read from a variety of feminist camps, including 2nd wave, 3rd wave, Black feminism, lesbian feminism, trans* rights, riot grrrl movement, third world feminism, radical feminism, eco feminism, sex positive feminism, anti-porn feminism, post-modernist feminism, etc. We'll also read books (novels, poetry, graphic novels, etc.) that aren't directly about feminism, but pertain to women and women's rights issues, and/or are interesting to read and discuss with a feminist lens. 

The meetings will be a space for open and respectful discussions of different viewpoints where everyone gets a chance to express their opinion and no one gets shouted down (unless they're being outright aggressive or using hate speech). Please check out our Discussion-Guideline-in-progress before attending meetings, and feel free offer suggestions and critiques. 

About choosing books: most of the time, books for each month will be suggested by members, and voted on through an anonymous online poll. Runners-up will automatically be included in the next's month's poll. On occasion, the mod(s) may choose a book. We have a list of possible books to read, and feel free to jot yours down here for safe-keeping. 

RSVP's for individual book meetup events will be closed at 25-30 to make sure they stay small enough that everyone who wishes to has a chance to speak. Occasionally, there will be outings to relevant events (movies, talks, etc.), as well as strictly social meetups. 

Members are invited to join our facebook group for discussion of all things feminist. <br> <br> Shout-out to the San Diego Feminist Book Group who inspired the group and the group description!

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.
