The Drawing Room, in collaboration with American Daughters, will be hosting a Women Who Read book club meeting on October 21st, 2017 to discuss Angela Davis's Freedom is a Constant Struggle. The aim of the group is to create a safe space for dialogue, learning, and becoming better allies in the fight toward social justice and intersectional* feminism. (As well as to drink good coffee & enjoy the company of new friends!)
We'll meet from 10a-12p at The Drawing Room for the book discussion.
Books are available at local bookstores, via Amazon, as well as at KC Public Libraries (extra copies will be on reserve)!
This event is FREE, but space will be limited to 25. REGISTER HERE.
*The term itersectionality was coined by civil rights activist and professor Kimberlé Crenshaw and can be defined as “the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage.” By adding the idea of intersectionality to feminism, the movement becomes truly inclusive, and allows women of all races, economic standings, religions, identities and orientations for their voices to be heard.
