This group is open to anyone interested in reading and discussing books that relate directly to feminism – whether they are exploring the intersection of feminism and pop-culture, feminist novels, or feminist theory. Our goal is to engage in feminist critique of patriarchal systems and to challenge hegemonic sexist discourse, but also to examine conflicts and disagreements within feminism.

This is meant to be an inclusive group – anyone who identifies as feminist or wants to learn more is welcome!

We generally try to alternate monthly between reading books and reading essays/articles; we meet near the end of each month for a discussion. We ask that anyone attending the discussion meetings has read or attempted to read the material (it's totally understandable if you didn't finish the reading, but please at least give it a go before the meeting).

We also meet occasionally for happy hour and other of-interest events -- feel free to email me with any suggestions you have.

Please join the group, let us know what you’re interested in reading and discussing, and any other ideas you have for the group.

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.
