Established in September 2015 this informal group meets on a monthly basis, usually in the City Tavern, to discuss a piece of feminist writing.  Our interests are broad and so far we have covered topics which include; the ‘Crisis of Masculinity’, Women and the unpaid economy and the Marxist-Foucauldian-feminist book, “Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body and Primitive Accumulation’.  Pieces are usually recommended by members.
