“My major suggestion is that we bring back the study group and that we read work together and discuss it. And as I said, that can be articles and that can be books but there is a real kind of disconnect with the historical roots of what it even means to be political. People think that being political means that you tell someone very effectively to get lost on twitter. That’s not political work, I mean not per say. They may be completely wrong, I mean I’m not saying they don’t need to be made aware. But that’s not political work…”
This was Barbara Smith’s response to what her advice to younger radicals is on Kimberlé Crenshaw’s podcast Intersectionality Matters.
And there’s no doubt she’s absolutely right, there is so much learning to do but doing it together makes it feel so much less overwhelming.
So that’s why I’ve created this group, to function sort of like a book club but with intersectional feminist works.

I’m really excited about this and I hope you are too!
