Untamed Discussion Group, June 14th at 7:00pm EST
I started reading Untamed, by Glennon Doyle, after a friend recommended it and it has shaken something so deep in me that I just HAVE to discuss it with other people that identify as women.
From the book: “When women learn how to please, we forget who we are. When women lose themselves, the world loses its way. We do not need any more selfless women. What we need right now is more women who are full of themselves. A woman who is full of only herself no longer internalizes the world’s memos and expectations. A woman who is full of herself knows and trusts herself enough to say and do what must be done, and lets the rest burn. THIS IS HOW YOU FIND YOURSELF.”
Sister Outsider Discussion Group, July 19th at 7:00pm EST
My life quote comes from the brilliance of Audre Lorde, “I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.” I cannot wait for us to get into the works of Audre Lorde through her book “Sister Outsider” and have a robust discussion about intersectional feminism!
About the book: Sister Outsider is a collection of essays focusing on race/racism, gender/sexism, sexual identity, and social class as these are enacted in a white-supremist, heterosexist, capitalist patriarchy.
