The CBR Gals Network, in partnership with ITP ACT, presents this event. “Gals Becoming” is a feminist book club for gals that provides a safe space for women to grow, to learn, to share ideas, and to become fuller versions of themselves. Whilst turning over the pages of Yumiko Kadota’s Emotional Female, we’d love you to join us over drinks for an evening of inclusive discussion, deep learning, and definitely a few laughs with like-minded gals. We’ll explore topics like women’s leadership through history, “off-the-shelf” advice and inspiration from talented authors, and gender issues affecting society.

The event is free to attend, and food and drink are available to purchase.

Join us for our April “Gals, Becoming” meetup at a central location (TBC) on 29 April, from 6 to 8PM.

About this Event


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? All ages are welcome to attend. Our age ranges typically from 19 – 65. Must be 18+ to drink alcoholic beverages.

What are the conditions of the “Gals, Becoming” Book Club?

Membership and events are free, but becoming a member is a monthly commitment. To become a member, attendees must: 

  • Attend three consecutive monthly meetings, to be held on the last Thursday of each month at a central location.
    • Note: After becoming a member, attendance is required at two of every three meetings. We think it’s important for gals to consistently attend meetings in order to form close relationships with other members.
  • Come to each meeting well-versed in the chosen book. Gals can “read” the book in whatever format you want, just come ready to chat about the book.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? There is plenty of parking but we recommend rideshare or carpool!

How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Please e-mail us at enquiries@cbrgals.com.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? Nope!

Want to sponsor this event, donate something for swag bags/giveaways, or vend? E-mail Ruhi at Ruhi.Asher@cbrgals.com.

Is there any penalty if I RSVP and do not show up? We understand things happen last minute, but our events have limited spots. If something comes up and you don’t cancel your ticket, you will not be allowed to RSVP to our events for the rest of the month. We want every gal to have a chance for a spot!
