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). People attending events should be in support of this focus and spend more time listening than speaking. Those who make anyone at the meetings uncomfortable will be banned without warning.

How Do the Book Discussions Work?

We meet, typically, the first Sunday of every month at The Lightened Cafe. There we discuss the book and enjoy some delicious coffee and other beverages. At the end of every meeting we choose a book to read the following meeting. Books are selected through voting. 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 would like to view a list of the books that have been read previously, and the books that have been suggested for later discussions please see the list here ( https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YC6UejPY2Aynkt99z1mYevGdfmpDhl90EKfbLGb0IxU/edit )
