FF Reading Group: ‘Straight Sex: Rethinking the Politics of Pleasure’ (Segal)

February 5, 2016 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm

We are kicking off a new Feminist Fightback reading group for the new year, reading Lynne Segal’s Straight Sex: Rethinking the Politics of Pleasure. The book was originally published in 1994, Segal’s contribution to the contentious debates in the feminist movement on the possibilities and problems of heterosexual desire for women.
Still relevant today, the book has just been republished by Verso (where you can currently get the print copy for £5 or ebook for £1). We’ll be reading the Preface and Chapter 1 for the first session on February 5th. We’ll then meet fortnightly, reading the book chapter by chapter (list of dates to follow). Please email feminist.fightback@gmail.com if you are interested in coming along so we have an idea of numbers, or if you have any questions. All welcome.
Obviously please read the text in advance!
Print copies are currently available from Verso for £5 or any book for £1.
