Fem Book Club

  • Centre for Stories 100 Aberdeen Street Northbridge, WA, 6003 Australia (map)

Fem Book Club is an introduction to a diverse range of novels by women about women. Through informal conversation about each text we will focus on the manifold experiences of being a woman through different moments in history and across varying communities.

It is an opportunity to think about and challenge what it means to be a woman and perhaps undermine any assumed universal experience by looking at how people of colour, transgender and non-binary identifying writers, or those who suffer with mental health issues have vastly different experiences of ‘feminism’ or what it is to be a ‘woman'.

Each Fem Book Club we will focus on an individual text and use it as a departure point to discuss the authors' wider oeuvre and importance in the realm of feminist conversation — how can we use these stories to navigate the world or inform how we think about our place within it?
