February read: My Body by Emily Ratajkowski

The CBR Gals Network presents our eighth book club event in partnership with Queenies KingstonGals, Becoming is a feminist book club that provides a safe space for gals to grow, learn, share ideas and become fuller versions of themselves. Join us over nibbles and drinks for thoughtful conversation, introspection and laughs with some like-minded gals.

This February, Gals Becoming will be discussing My Body. A profoundly personal exploration of feminism, sexuality, and power, of men’s treatment of women and women’s rationalizations for accepting that treatment. These essays chronicle moments from Ratajkowski’s life while investigating the culture’s fetishization of girls and female beauty, its obsession with and contempt for women’s sexuality, the perverse dynamics of the fashion and film industries, and the grey area between consent and abuse. There is a trigger warning as the book discusses situations of sexual abuse.

The cost of this event covers food. Drinks will be available for purchase.

Join us for our “Gals, Becoming” book club meetup at Queenies Kingston from 6 to 8 PM.

This event is brought to you by CBR Gals in partnership with Queenies Kingston

About this Event

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

Membership and is free, but each event costs $10 to cover the cost of nibbles. Additionally, 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!
