If you love reading and talking about feminism this book club is for you.

Through reading and discussion we want to explore intersectional 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.

Like the FCA more generally we aim to be a harassment free space for everybody. If you are new to our meetings, or feel you need a refresher please read our code of conduct to find out what behaviors we hope for from you, and hold ourselves to in our sessions (

Everyone who participates can suggest texts for future sessions.

White Innocence: Paradoxes of Colonialism and Race (2016) by Gloria Wekker on Sunday 22nd October at 16, at NieuwLand  

In this text Wekker “explores a central paradox of Dutch culture: the passionate denial of racial discrimination and colonial violence coexisting alongside aggressive racism and xenophobia […] Wekker analyzes the Dutch media’s portrayal of black women and men, the failure to grasp race in the Dutch academy, contemporary conservative politics (including gay politicians espousing anti-immigrant rhetoric), and the controversy surrounding the folkloric character Black Pete, showing how the denial of racism and the expression of innocence safeguards white privilege”
– From innocence

We’ll meet on Sunday 22nd October at 16, and our home for this event is the lovely NieuwLand in Amsterdam Oost (

There will be a donation jar and some refreshments available (cash or pin)
Please think about donating something if you are able; a place like NieuwLand can only exist through the contributions of volunteers and friends, who know of the importance of places like this, which exist alternative to an individualistic society, capitalist economy and gentrifying neighborhoods

NieuwLand is wheelchair accessible but the toilets are not
The nearest public spaces with larger toilets are Tropen Museum (open Tuesday-Saturday 10-17) and hotel The Manor (open 24/7)

If you have access needs regarding the event, that you feel may not be in place, please get in contact with us so that we can do our best to incorporate these

We understand that it can be daunting to attend events where you don’t yet know anyone. If you feel worried or socially anxious about attending and would like to meet first, reach out

If you want to attend the session but money reasons make it difficult for you to get hold of the book we will try to help
