Who is the riot grrrl holding the book?

No answer yet

Try to name three books that you feel discuss gender in some way. It doesn't matter if we already read them.

1) Nervous Conditions by Tsitsi Dangarembga; It is a Zimbabwean fictional text that follows a young women's journey to education while highlighting the intersections of race, class, gender, and educational level. 2) Borderlands/La Frontera by Gloria AnzaldĂșa; if you haven't read this yet, please read it! Chicana feminist and lesbian, AnzaldĂșa, uses poetry and many other writing genres to explain her history and experiences as a women and how it is not a separate identity from her Chicana-ness/brownness and lesbian-ness. (Cherrie Moraga and Ana Castillo are also awesome) "Cunt" by Inga Muscio; I think it is self-explanatory but it is a rather radical (although, unfortunately trans-exclusive) piece that is quite clearly in the author's voice and playing on her experiences. A great read, although equally enjoyable to problematize.

Introduction

Hello! I just moved here from Seattle, and Olympia before that. I am a proud feminist and I am excited to share what that means to me and hear about what feminism means to you. I'm excited to meat y'all!
