Jean Menzies of Bookish Thoughts is launching a feminist book club called The Feminist Orchestra. The plan is to read and discuss one feminist text a month, and Jean has chosen a range of books from novels to non fiction and graphic novels to poetry. All the details are on the Goodreads page, where people are recommending books and will discuss each month's read. I plan to blog about each book on here too! This book club's launch was perfect timing for my resolution to read more feminist literature. It also feels a little bit more accessible than Emma Watson's Our Shared Shelf, which has over a hundred thousand members to The Feminist Orchestra's 1000 odd. I feel like more meaningful discussion will be able to take place in this smaller community. The first book is I Call Myself a Feminist: The View from Twenty-Five Women Under Thirty, to read during March.
