November Read: Only Cry on Fridays by Alice Waite

The CBR Gals Network presents our eighth book club eventGals, 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.

To recognise Australia’s first Economic Abuse Awareness Day, this November we will be reading Only Cry On Fridays by Alice Waite. A true story, Only Cry on Fridays documents Alice’s tribulations and ultimate triumph with experiences of  emotional abuse and Coercive Control. In this book club, we will discuss recognising and overcoming emotional abuse, and how women and gender diverse people can protect themselves against common symptoms of coercive control.

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

Join us for our final “Gals, Becoming” book club of 2021 at Queenies Kingston on 25 November, from 6 to 8 PM.
