Everyone welcome to join this monthly reading group exploring radical interpretations of women’s oppression.
Where? Central London tbc
What are we reading?
This month we’re reading a chapter from black American feminist bell hooks’ book “Ain’t I a woman?” (published in 1981), to open up discussion on the complexities of oppression, and what Marxists and other anti-capitalist feminists should say about intersectionality. What are the different meanings and interpretations of the concept? What is the role of identity and personal experience in politics? How does this fit into conceptions of capitalism and class struggle?
Everyone welcome to join the discussion. We’ll be going for a drink in Birkbeck SU bar afterwards.
Suggested reading – all available here. Read as much or as little as you can and feel free to post additional suggestions on the facebook group.
