The Global Women's Caucus feminist reading group is pleased to announce its next pick, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson.
At the end of a transformative year in the struggle for racial equality, this discussion will engage participants who are looking to expand their awareness of how racism shapes American systems and the world at large, including individual lives.
Isabel Wilkerson is the Pulitzer Prize winning writer of The Warmth of Other Suns.
In “Caste”, she uses "an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people to show how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings."
Thanks to all who joined our discussion of "Good and Mad." We hope this discussion can go even deeper! We look forward to seeing you there!

About Me: Prior to moving to Germany, I completed a BA in International Relations and Spanish and moved to Germany to access more affordable education opportunities. I obtained a BS in International Wine Business and am starting my own wine distribution company. I am an avid gardener and love to cook.
I believe in an America where health care is a right, immigrants are welcome, education is affordable, nutritious food is accessible to all, the police are abolished and communities are funded, the school to prison pipeline is a part of history, the Green New Deal has created millions of jobs and where Black lives matter every day, all day.
