Feminist Fightback Reading Group: Interviews with Radical Palestinian Women

April 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Feminist Fightback and friends for the third and last book in our short look at the Palestinian struggle. Having read a fiction book (Minor Detail) and a non-fiction book (Greater than the sum of our parts), we’re now going to read ‘Interviews with radical Palestinian women’, a book edited by the Shoal collective.

This book covers the struggles against colonialism, white supremacy, conservatism, patriarchy, state control and occupation. In the Shoal Collective’s own words:

The idea for this book came out of a concern that solidarity movements have a tendency only to engage with Palestinians about their fight against the Israeli occupation. Sometimes this can be a barrier to seeing them as comrades in our intersecting struggles for a better world and against authoritarianism, white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism and state control.

For this session we don’t expect you to have read the whole book. Instead, please come having read at least a couple of the interviews, and be ready to explain them to those who may have chosen to read different interviews than you.

This book can be bought in paper format or pdf or downloaded for free from the Shoal Collective’s website. It can also be found in brick and mortar bookshops like Housmans or Foyles.

You don’t need to have participated in the previous Feminist Fightback reading group sessions on Palestine to show up – everyone is welcome. Drop us a line if you would like more details at feminist.fightback@gmail.com.

The session will take place in person at Golden Lane Community Centre, Golden Lane Estate, London EC1Y 0SA. The venue is fully accessible. Please arrive at 7.30 for 7.45 start; we will finish at 9.00pm. All genders welcome.
