Get ready to enter NOW’s Feminist Public Square by diving into new book picks and sharing in discourse to further our feminist future. Our aim is to elevate feminist thought and ideas and create a space for robust discussion. Each book selected will relate to one or more of NOW’s core issues: reproductive rights and justice, economic justice, ending violence against women, racial justice, LGBTQIA+ rights, and constitutional equality.
Our goal is to grow together by reading books from feminists and brilliant minds of all ages, races, gender identities, and backgrounds. Your active participation in the Feminist Public Square is not only valued but also vital to furthering this collective goal. Together, we will connect, learn, and maybe even shed a tear or two as we navigate the realities of confronting injustice.
Ultimately, we will grow to be stronger feminists and better-informed allies to marginalized identities. These page-turners will spark conversations that will embolden us to be even more impactful in this intersectional feminist fight. Your voice matters here and the Feminist Public Square is where your differing opinions and thought-provoking ideas can flourish for the overall advancement towards a true feminist reality.
The Feminist Public Square can be your second home so settle in and get comfortable- all are welcome. Bring your questions, thoughts, and book recommendations to this page as well. Welcome to the book club!
