Contemporary Book Talk - Women's Rights and Feminism

Thursday, March 30th @ 5pm

The library will continue to host monthly book talks and discussions on books that focus on matters of importance to contemporary life. For March, the talks will focus on books about women’s rights and feminism. At the meeting on Thursday, March 30th at 5 pm, the group will meet to discuss How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran, a humorous look at feminism and sexism in contemporary life; We Should all be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a short essay based on this Nigerian author’s TED talk; and Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, a best-selling book which looks at the oppression of women globally. These books all focus on sexism and feminism in the US and internationally. Feel free to pick one, two, or all three of the books to read and come to the discussion on March 30th. We will also be presenting three books on the environmental crisis for discussion in April.
