Discussing ‘The New Feminism’ at Pages of Hackney this Thursday

Just a quick note to say that this Thursday (the 23rd) Pages of Hackney will be hosting two fabulous feminist authors, Catherine Redfern and Kat Banyard, to discuss ‘The New Feminism’. Touching on issues covered within their books (Reclaiming The F Word and The Equality Illusion, respectively) the duo will assert that feminism is alive and well, and as vital today as it ever was.

Entrance is just £3, but these events tend to be well-attended, so RSVP to David at info@pagesofhackney.co.uk to ensure your place. The event begins at 7 – all details here!

Childcare discussed in London this Wednesday at Feminist Fightback

The discussion of childcare takes centre stage at the next Feminist Fightback meeting, taking place this Wednesday the 12th. Open to all self-defining women, the meeting will focus around a political discussion of childcare and will include an update on the cuts to Hackney nurseries.

Feminist Fightback recommend that those intent on diving into the discussion take a little look at ‘The Power of Women and the Subversion of the Community’ by Mariarosa Dalla Costa and Selma James (1972), which you can read here. Hell, it’s worth a read even if you can’t make it to the meeting… always interesting to pick up old theory books! (or is that just me being a tad geeky?)

The meeting will take place from 7-9pm Wednesday 12th May at Oxford House (5 minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube) and all attendees are welcome to bring their children – although, you would like FF to organise a creche, you will need to email them in advance.

More details here.
