We are pleased to bring you this baby podcast's very first Galentine's Day celebration, in the form of inviting all of you to join the kind of feminist book club Surabhi and Kristin have had running since the beginning of their friendship!
Kristin draws some parallels between Joan Didion's 1979 essay collection The White Album and our present political moment, including the durability of racism and sexism and how feminist learning unfolds over time (and still has a long way to go). Surabhi entices you to savor Roxane Gay's rather relatable - and thus, quite intense - short stories in Difficult Women. She discusses how Gay plays with the power of alllll the different labels patriarchy uses to box in women, and how these judgments impact experiences of female subjectivity.
In addition to this audio treat, we have some other sweet recommendations you can share with your partner, or your partner-in-crime, this holiday. 👉🏾 Keep an eye on our Happy Hour Specials tab for more coming soon! 👈🏾
