What we're about
Hello and welcome!
Thank you for your interest in this Meetup. It is open to anyone interested in learning, reading, and having conversations about feminism and gender equality. The goal is to read feminist authors and their classic texts and have interesting and thoughtful conversations with others about them!
We meet on the second Thursday of every month from 6:30p-8:00p at the 5 Dollar and Under Bookstore (2880-A Cochran Street, Simi Valley, CA 93063). For those of us who want to carry on longer, we then head over to Starbucks across the street (2991 Cochran Street, Simi Valley, CA 93063).
Our format: We alternate between classic and modern feminist books each month and have rotating leaders guide each discussion. The leader chooses how to lead the discussion, usually with some suggested further reading, discussion questions, etc. (which will often be posted in the meetup description beforehand). We choose the books as a group at the end of our meetups and aim to do so a couple months in advance to give everyone a chance to plan their reading.
I hope we may learn from the books as well as each other while building a community of like-minded folks. If you want to attend a meetup and haven't yet read or finished the book, please feel free to show up anyway and participate in the conversation!
I am thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to experience these important and exciting books with all of you!
