Bad Feminist Readings

The Bad Feminist Readings is a feminist reading of not-so-feminist titles from our personal paperback collections. With titles like How to Make Yourself More Interesting to your Husband and Corporate Gamesmenship for Women, these books offer opportunities into how to turn really bad advice into good advice. NYC feminists will take the stage to talk about their reaction to the books and to read highlights of their favorite titles to the audience. Come out to laugh about how far we've come and think a little more about how far we still have to go.
