HerStory: Women's Issues Through Literature
Please join us in our new monthly reading group. Books and discussions will include topics that revolve around women's issues in society as perceived through literature. We will discuss the history of each concept and discuss how far women's roles have changed in society over the years. Our discussions will be fun and lively with a chance to explore interesting topics and make new friends.
The book for June is:
The Last Time I Wore a Dress by Daphne Scholinski
~ We will discuss a 15 year old girl’s journey through a mental institution in the early 1980s with the diagnosis of “gender identity disorder”. The author spent three years and over a million dollars of insurance money learning to be female. We will also discuss psychiatric abuse of certain populations within our society.
