Foundations of Socialist Feminism

April 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

This is a socialist feminist reading group open to women, non-binary people, and femme-identifying folks in Atlanta. Our goal is to explore the interconnectedness of gender, sexuality, reproduction, both paid and unpaid labor, race, and class from an explicitly socialist-feminist standpoint.

————————

Our second study group meeting will explore the history and background of Socialist Feminism— “Foundations Socialist Feminism?” Continue below for this unit’s reading list & important meeting logistics info (dates/location/parking/virtual attendance/potluck!)

MEETING LOGISTICS
* This meeting will take place Sunday afternoon from 2-4pm.

Street parking is free during the times we are meeting. The meeting room is on the fifth floor with an accessible entrance. Please try to arrive on time. We will have someone on ‘door duty’ to let folks in until 2:15pm. If no one is at the door, call (304) 506-3809 and we will send someone down to let you in. (This number will be posted on the door, it is the MADSA google voice number)
