Book Discussion, Hood Feminism

WF Sunny Table | Women’s Fund Office at the Landmark Building 316 N. Milwaukee Street Suite 215, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

“I think 'Hood Feminism' is a good book to continue the conversation of the feminist movement and the issues of intersectionality we heard at the Women’s Fund Presents event held in November 2021. Oftentimes, we look at the lens of feminism through goals such as pay equity and executive leadership; however, these pale in comparison to issues many women of color from a different socioeconomic reality are dealing with: food insecurity, housing issues, gun violence, and sexual assault.  As a feminist, I look forward to learning how to make my feminism more intersectional.”

WF Sunny Table | Women’s Fund Office at the Landmark Building 316 N. Milwaukee Street Suite 215, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

This runaway bestseller, brought to you by the attorney founder of the Notorious RBG Tumblr and an award-winning feminist journalist, is more than just a love letter. It draws on intimate access to Ginsburg's family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks, as well as an interview with the Justice herself. An original hybrid of reported narrative, annotated dissents, rare archival photos and documents, and illustrations, the book tells a never-before-told story of an unusual and transformative woman who transcended divides and changed the world forever.

Book Discussion, Lakota Woman

Virtual via Zoom

Hosted by Starla Thompson: “My work as an educator, scholar, dancer, advocate, and mother is directly influenced by my lived experiences as a Potawatomi woman born and raised in Chicago, ancestral Potawatomi land. I am an enrolled member of the Forest County Band of Potawatomi that resides in northern Wisconsin. A long line of matriarch relatives, who survived removal, assimilation (boarding schools), relocation, and other federal policies aimed at our genocide, impact my work, power my passion for truth, and inspire my commitment to healing in all communities. Deepening the understanding of my native culture has been a treasured gift.”
