7 Worthwhile Reasons to Start and/or Join a Feminist Book Club

I feel that women's issues and feminism in general are more important than ever these days. So, when I discovered an article on Bustle's website titled, 7 Ways A Feminist Book Club Can Change Your Life This Year by E. Ce Miller, I looked forward to reading the it. In the article, E. Ce Miller wrote the following:
It’s clear that the world is starting to change for women in a big way this year — and joining a feminist book club might be just one way to help yourself make sense of it all. Between the power of the Women’s Marches and the devastation of rampant sexual assault cases there’s a lot of gray area, and room for a whole lot of questions about what feminism means to you and where you might find your own place in it all. Reading some great feminist literature — and gathering together with some feminist book-lovers like yourself — might be exactly what you need to hold space for yourself and your questions, and start to work out some much-needed answers. Plus, by reading feminist literature you’ll be supporting women who, like the women of the #MeToo Movement today, have dared to tell hard stories about their lives. A book club and feminist activism all rolled into one? You can’t beat that.
I'd love to start or join an existing feminist book club, whether it is person meet-up type of book club or an online book club. There are so many great feminist works out there to be read and discussed with others! 


  1. As you know, I am in several book clubs and I would say that all the female members are feminists of one kind or another. There are two men in one of the groups. One is a feminist and the other makes cracks about me being one, all the time! We are working on him-:)

    1. Sounds like you have some amazing book club members! Good book club members makes for a better book club experience.
