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 QDA: Queer Disability Anthology edited by Raymond Luczak. (http://smile.amazon.com/QDA-Disability-Anthology-Raymond-Luczak/dp/1941960022/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1460998984&sr=8-1&keywords=queer+disability+anthology)

Featuring fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and comics by 48 writers from around the world, QDA: A Queer Disability Anthology proves that intersectionality isn’t just a buzzword. It’s a penetrating and unforgettable look into the hearts and souls of those defiant enough to explore their own vulnerabilities and demonstrate their own strengths. Here is a gathering of people with the transformative-and political-power of love that transcends gender and ability. Ignorance is the biggest barrier. “An anthology often creates a community. In this respect, QDA is truly groundbreaking because it brings two wonderful communities together. There is not a single style, genre, or opinion in the book, but an orchestra of voices. Their seminal works mirror-and do not mirror-each other. Taken together, they light a brilliant path of honesty.” -Jennifer Bartlett, co-editor of Beauty Is a Verb: The New Poetry of Disability

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).
