We are an intersectional, inclusive book group focusing on Feminism and gender equality. We are a mixed gender group and LGBTQ+ friendly. The idea is to discuss the voice, tone, and themes of the book, and to reach out into a wider discussion of Feminism. Book meets are to be held on a Thursday every month, with a scattering of wider, social events throughout!
Bex is an avid reader and an Intersectional Feminist. She set up the group to fuse these two loves and to create a safe space for like-minded people to hang out and chat together.
Event Organiser and Runner of the Gram - Tomasz
Tomasz is into fitness, comic books, and photography. He is a sex positive, trans inclusive feminist, working on becoming more intersectional. He enjoys organisation and event planning, so being an event organiser for the book group was a perfect fit!
Event Organiser - Steph
Steph doesn't like labels but she does agree with the ideas of feminism and loves to talk to other friendly and open minded people. She likes to spend her time knitting, exploring, and playing tabletop RPG.

See here as well for 'Project Implicit', designed to measure "implicit social cognition - thoughts and feelings outside of conscious awareness and control", the goal being to discover your own level of implicit bias, and "to educate the public about hidden biases and to provide a “virtual laboratory” for collecting data on the Internet".
