Join Keshet and Moishe Kavod House for an Intersectional Feminist Book Club! Each month we gather to discuss a book with themes connected to intersectional feminism. Books are chosen the month prior and feature authors of diverse identities including race, class, ability, sexual orientation and gender identity. Newcomers are always welcome, just come prepared to discuss the month’s book.

The book for this meeting is “Feminist, Queer, Crip” by Alison Kafer. (http://smile.amazon.com/Feminist-Queer-Crip-Alison-Kafer/dp/0253009340/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1453822975&sr=1-1&keywords=feminist+queer+crip)

In “Feminist, Queer, Crip” Alison Kafer imagines a different future for disability and disabled bodies. Challenging the ways in which ideas about the future and time have been deployed in the service of compulsory able-bodiedness and able-mindedness, Kafer rejects the idea of disability as a pre-determined limit. She juxtaposes theories, movements, and identities such as environmental justice, reproductive justice, cyborg theory, transgender politics, and disability that are typically discussed in isolation and envisions new possibilities for crip futures and feminist/queer/crip alliances. This bold book goes against the grain of normalization and promotes a political framework for a more just world.

Not sure if you’re a feminist? Maybe this Beyonce approved definition can help clarify. “Feminist: a person who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.” I hope that’s you. Check out Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED talk to hear the words that inspired Queen Bey.(http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/We-should-all-be-feminists-Chim)
