Young feminist discussion group series begins Feb. 3
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Can you shave your armpits ... love men ... listen
to gangsta rap ... and still be a feminist? A weekly discussion group
for young feminists will tackle those issues beginning Tuesday, Feb. 3.
The group is sponsored by the University of Iowa Women's Resource and
Action Center (WRAC).
The group, "To Be Real: Discussions on Feminism," will give
young feminists a chance to look at issues that may have been left unanswered
by previous generations of feminists, says Katie Geha, who developed the
six-week discussion group. Participants will read and discuss several
essays in a book by Rebecca Walker, To Be Real: Telling the Truth and
Changing the Face of Feminism.
All meetings will be at the Women's Center, 130 N. Madison, Iowa City.
