Bookclub

If you love reading or/and annoy your friends by talking about feminism this book club is for you.

Through reading and discussion we want to explore feminist texts that critically and reflectively engage with our worlds as they are, and open up our imaginations to the worlds that could be.

This group is for anyone who is interested in learning and discussing feminist texts with others, and anyone who has an eye on changing the status quo.

We plan to meet each first Sunday of the month at OT301 in Amsterdam (http://www.ot301.nl)

During each session we will discuss the chosen text for a couple of hours, and then for those who want to continue enjoy the yummy vegan food made at De Peper.

Everyone who participates can suggest texts that we may read in future sessions.
