Event: The New York Times Feminist Reading Group

EFA Project Space, 323 West 39th Street, 2nd Floor

7:00pm

Please join us for the first New York Times Feminist Reading Group of 2012. The reading group will be dedicated to looking at Tuesday, February 21st's edition of The New York Times from a feminist perspective.

The New York Times Feminist Reading Group gathers several times a year to discuss current events and feminist politics addressed in issues of The New York Times on the day of the reading group's meeting. Participants are welcome to join regardless of whether they have read, skimmed, or glanced at that day's paper. The discussion begins informally with new items or issues that participants bring attention to first, and dives into investigations of specific articles or images, editorial choices or ad placements, and larger questions about the business of newspapers and other contemporary media.  

   

The project is organized and facilitated by Jen Kennedy and Liz Linden, who have collaborated on projects that investigate contemporary usages of the word "feminism" since 2008. Their projects range from town hall meetings, to feminist book swaps, to pilot press (their D.I.Y. feminist publishing house), to video and sound works.
