What we're about

Who are we?

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!

Each month's book will be chosen on a rolling basis using a Doodle Poll. All suggestions are welcome - these will be taken at the end of each meet and then members will get the chance to vote online. To get you started, you can find a list of ideas here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jID ...

Leadership Team:

Organiser and Founder - Bex

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.
