a feminist book club
“Gals, Becoming” is a feminist book club that seeks to help its members improve the quality of their lives through learning, growing, and sharing ideas in a safe space.
“Gals, Becoming” meets once per month and draws on publications from around the globe, featuring memoirs, novels, biographies, and short stories from a variety of authors, spotlighting women authors of colour, women authors with disability, and women authors who have overcome patriarchal adversity throughout the ages. The reading provides a holistic view of feminism: viewing feminism as political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.
Participants can expect to receive the complete feminist experience: including 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.
Hosted by long-time CBR Gal Natalie Udler, “Gals, Becoming” is a great option for feminists who love to read widely, anyone interested in women’s leadership, or the every day gal who is simply keen to be in a group of supportive women.
