Readers of The F Word over in (East?) Yorkshire might be pleased to hear there is a new feminist group. Unfortunately they met on 28th (and I didn’t know until today) but there was a piece in the Scarborough Evening News. They met at the Friends Meeting House so I hope you could make contact with the organisers through them.

Also, whilst we’re announcing things, Amy Richards (Manifesta co-author with Jennifer Baumgardner) has a new book out called Opting In: Having a Child without Losing Yourself and it’s reviewed over at Mother Jones.

Opting In…seeks to bridge the perceived divide between feminism and motherhood. Employing an engaging mix of cultural analysis, personal anecdotes, and interviews, Richards tackles hot-button topics including fertility, childbirth, men’s role in parenting, and women’s relationships with their mothers.
