Hey all! I just realised that it would be great to give you an area where you could suggest readings for the reading group, so here it is! If you want to see something discussed at our fortnightly reading group, post up the information/details/piece itself up here!
Okay... so i think i've said this like 10 times about bell hooks but seeing i can't make the fem reading group, here's my suggestions....
anything by bell hooks... (wiki: Gloria Jean Watkins (born September 25, 1952), better known by her pen name bell hooks, is an American author, feminist, and social activist. Her writing has focused on the interconnectivity of race, class, and gender and their ability to produce and perpetuate systems of oppression and domination. She has published over thirty books and numerous scholarly and mainstream articles, appeared in several documentary films and participated in various public lectures. Primarily through a postmodern perspective, hooks has addressed race, class, and gender in education, art, history, sexuality, mass media and feminism.)

Bell Hooks is great! Thanks for introducing me to her! I haven't gotten a chance to see the other three yet, but I've been reading through both Feminism is for Everybody and Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center for readings to include.
