Book Group: "Women and Power" by Mary Beard
The book for April is Women and Power by Mary Beard "Britain's best-known classicist Mary Beard, is also a committed and vocal feminist. With wry wit, she revisits the gender agenda and shows how history has treated powerful women. Her examples range from the classical world to the modern day, from Medusa and Athena to Theresa May and Hillary Clinton. Beard explores the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, considering the public voice of women, our cultural assumptions about women's relationship with power, and how powerful women resist being packaged into a male template." -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Don't forget you can bring your own drinks and food. While we are very social and welcoming, the book group's primary focus is on discussing books. Feel free to turn up if you haven't managed to finish this months book but note that the group works best when we have all read at least some of the book and are prepared to share our opinions. Katia:[masked] Mary:[masked] --------------------------------------------------------------------------- We kindly ask for £3 cash per head to help cover the costs of our speaker meetings, venue hire, our annual Meetup subscription fees, and the CLHG membership of various international humanist bodies. The collection is made during each meeting. You can also make an online donation (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=ZWCNRJ25BDL96) at any time. Events are advertised on multiple online portals, and through email, so the RSVP numbers on any one portal will not reflect the actual greater attendance on the day. We encourage dialogue, debate and sharing of information on our site but ask people to keep their comments cordial. Any views expressed here are those of the individual posting them and may not reflect those of the CLHG.

What we're about

Public Group

Welcome to the Central London Humanist Group!

The CLHG provides a meeting place for Humanists, the secular and other non religious people, particularly those who live or work in the Central London area.

Every month we hold a talk/lecture and several social events. Our social activities include group socials, a book group, picnics, walks, museum & cultural visits and theatre trips.

If you're not religious and would like to meet like minded people, please join us.

As we don't have a membership fee a donation of £3 is suggested at each meetup. This goes towards our running costs, partnership fees and charitable donations. If it's your first time we don't expect a donation.

We are a partner group of Humanists UK (http://www.humanism.org.uk)
We are an Associate Member of the International Humanist and Ethical Union
We are Consultative Members of the European Humanist Federation (http://www.iheu.org)

We're also on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/centrallondonhumanists) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/LondonHumanists/). Some of our previous talks are available on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/user/LondonHumanistGroup).

Anyone who joins us on Meetup can participate fully in events. They can suggest events, participate in organising events and much more.

As we are such a large group, each year we hold an AGM and elect a committee to help manage the group. To be a voting member of the Central London Humanists or be a member of the committee, you must be a paid up member of Humanists UK (to join go here (https://www.humanism.org.uk/join)).
