A Year of Feminist Classics

Because they're better together :)

About

A Year of Feminist Classics is a project started in 2011 by Amy, Ana, Emily Jane and Iris, four book bloggers who share an interest in the feminist movement and its history. In 2012, JeanCassEmilyNancyLaurenMelissaJodie and Eva joined our team.

The project will work a little like an informal reading group: each month we 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 texts are relevant in our times. We welcome all voices and perspectives, and we would love it if you joined in and added your own.

    Thought you might be interested in this NPR article which involves the Feminine Mystique and a new book that takes a look at it: http://www.npr.org/2011/01/26/132931581/stirring-up-the-feminine-mystique-47-years-later?live=1

    Is there a hashtag for Twitter for the reading challenge?

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, Jean. Have you read “My Brilliant Career” by Miles Franklin? It fits your project and I think you will like that one. I certainly did :)
