Tomorrow marks the start of Women’s History Month and we’re looking forward to a month filled with exciting events honoring the progress we’ve made, and educating on the challenges we still face.
We know that right now some of these challenges feel enormous and bleak. We can give in to the malaise and doom-scrolling, or we can unite to learn and grow! You can beat the blues with bell by joining our Women’s March Book Read featuring bell hooks’ seminal feminist primer, Feminism Is For Everybody.
bell hooks was a groundbreaking Black feminist thinker and writer, who passed away in December. To honor her legacy and celebrate Women’s History Month, we’re dedicating our Book Read to her trailblazing book, Feminism Is For Everybody. Together, we’ll explore the themes of race, class, power, and gender; and talk about why building a mass, anti-racist movement is critical to our feminist future.
We’ll kick off our Book Read on Tuesday, March 8th at 8 PM EST by introducing the themes and structure for our book read. We’ll wrap with a grand finale on Tuesday, April 5th with some great speakers and discussion of our themes. Space is limited, and we’re hoping you’ll join us.
When you sign up for the Book Read, you’ll receive our Book Read Toolkit with everything you need to participate – including purchase/acquisition info, study/reflection questions, and additional resources.
