Ooh, a complete list, well done!

"Fat is a Feminist Issue" was a brilliant read!

Can we have Catharine MacKinnon's Are Women Human? for July 2012 please?

I read Misogynies recently - it's a brilliant one for book club I think because it covers such a range of topics from film to the way the police investigated the Yorkshire Ripper murders.

I have read and reviewed the Sylvia Walby book so it'll be interesting to hear what others think of it.

No, that sounds like an excellent plan, thanks SGM!

Yes, I'm sorry I didn't clock that BGTF is the November book club book confused

We could start this group off on the back of the November book club discussion then?

right, i've made a new thread for the proposed Mary Daly Reading Group - anyone interested in taking part come on over and put your two penn'orth in about how it would work best for you smile

Prolesworth Wed 12-Oct-11 22:06:33

Really good - I'd be up for reading it again. My thinking has changed and developed a lot since we discussed the book last time.

Sounds like a plan SGM!

I think we did Heartbreak last year didn't we?

AlysWorld Wed 12-Oct-11 21:01:18

Heartbreak: The Political Memoir of a Militant Feminist by Dworkin is meant to be an eas[ier] read. And it's on Kindle grin

That makes total sense Pride: some texts lend themselves to the monthly book group format much better than others, don't they?

Mary Daly and stuff like Kate Millett's Sexual Politics are huge, important texts that need more time to digest and to discuss I think. Shall we start up a thread for Gyn/Ecology then? Or we could start off with Beyond God The Father? We could do one chapter per fortnight maybe?

I was also going to say it isn't either fairly short and extremely readable like Living Dolls or The Equality Illusion,or a one issue book like Against Our Will/Wifework which I think are easier to cover in a one off discussion.(if that makes sense)

PrideOfChanur Wed 12-Oct-11 16:48:38

That might be a good idea,Prolesworth,I'd be interested in that if other people were.
I read some of Beyond God the Father (I'm hoping to start again for the November book club,but my book is taking forever to arrive - got it from the library 1st time),I found it interesting and wanted to finish,but I also found her style of writing hard to read,on top of thinking about what she was actually saying.
