A Year of Feminist Classics

// 1 January 2011


A Year of Feminist Classics logoIf you’re casting around for a New Year’s resolution that might offer both a sense of fulfilment and a way of expanding your literary horizons, it’s not too late to take part in A Year of Feminist Classics. From the ‘About’ page of the website:

A Year of Feminist Classics is a project started by Amy, Ana, Emily Jane and Iris, four book bloggers who share an interest in the feminist movement and its history. The project will work a little like an informal reading group: for all of 2011, we will each month read what we consider to be a central feminist text, with one of us being in charge of the discussion. We invite all readers to join us – you certainly don’t have to commit to the whole twelve months to participate (though we would love it if you did!); if there’s any particular title you have always wanted to read, here’s your chance of doing so with a group of fellow readers who will do their best to use it as a point of departure for a stimulating discussion.

What we hope to achieve is to gain a better historical understanding of the struggle for gender equality, as well as a better awareness of how the issues discussed in these now classic texts are still relevant in our times. We welcome all voices and perspectives, and we would love it if you joined in and added your own.

Interested? There’s more information at the website (including a reading schedule) and you can sign up by clicking the link in this post.
