FEMINIST STORYTELLING: BOOKS ABROAD READS REBECCA SOLNIT

At this meeting, we'll be discussing Rebecca's Solnit's book The Mother of All Questions, a collection of essays centered around feminist storytelling. Solnit, a California native and lifelong activist, is credited with inspiring the term "mansplaining" in a 2008 essay titled, "Men Explain Things to Me," which later became a book published in 2014. The Mother of All Questions is a follow-up to that book in which Solnit further unpacks cultural misogyny and the power of a woman's story.

You can find the book easily on Amazon.

As a prominent writer in literary feminism, Solnit is both praised for her wide-ranging thematic coverage and criticized as a figurehead at the forefront of "pop feminism." Please join us as we dive into Solnit's lyrical storytelling style, debate what its means to be a "valid feminist," and discuss the ways in which we can amplify women's voices. 

We will send you the Webex link and explanations for calling in when you RSVP.  

Try it!  It's fun and interesting.
