Feminism is on the move. Not only in the form of ideas about femininity, masculinity and whatever lies in between. Nor only in the breaking of norms and fight against conformity. We take feminism along in our daily lives. In the jobs that we seek, in the movements that we make, and in the comments that we share.

In this reading group, we want to travel through these different places of everyday encounters. The aim is to rethink these encounters by putting on feminist glasses. But we won’t be limiting our rethinking to the hidden patterns embedded in gender relations. Contemporary feminism can go way beyond. The challenge is to look for the interconnections with other silent voices and reflect on the way our dreams, our behaviour and our institutions are shaped.

This reading group is participatory, self-organised and free of charge. We collectively decide which subtopics to cover and what literature to read by splitting up into groups, which will each organize one of the sessions. The reading group will be in English, held from April 22 to July 1, bi-weekly on Wednesday evenings from 19:30 until 22:00 in political bookshop de Rooie Rat at Oudegracht 65 in Utrecht.
