What we're about
Who Should Join?
This group is open to anyone with an interest in discussing books related to feminism and meeting other like-minded readers in Taipei!
My hope is that this group can work together and build on each others' unique strengths and experiences. We will focus on intersectional feminism and strive to be as inclusive as possible. If you have suggestions for events or books to discuss, please feel free to share your ideas!
This group welcomes feminists and feminist allies of all gender identities. However, the focus is on those who experience widespread oppression based on their gender (i.e. women and trans/genderqueer people). Men attending events should be in support of this focus and spend more time listening than speaking. Those who make women at the meetings uncomfortable will be banned without warning.
How Do the Book Discussions Work?
Every month we choose a book to read before the book discussion. Then we meet to share our opinions of the book. Currently, the book selections and discussions are in English (but if you'd prefer to read a Chinese translation of the same book, that's fine!) If you want to suggest future books go to "Discussions" in the menu bar under the group name. If you want to vote in a poll for a future book go to "More" then "Polls."
Please do your best to read the book before any book discussions. If you haven't had the chance to read the book at all, it's best to skip the discussion, especially if there are people on the waitlist for the event. However, if you only had time to read part of the book, you're welcome to come and chat about what you have read!
I will try to choose books that are inexpensive to access in Taiwan. If you're having trouble locating a book, please leave a comment on the event page or message the organizer and there's a good chance someone will be able to lend you a copy.
