Happy Friday the 13th!
I’m starting a book club on this blog as sort of a side project. Do you think I should have a separate blog or just make a new page on this one? There is a new page (see strip at the top marked ‘Book Club’) but I don’t know if it’s the best approach.
The first book I want to re-read is Susan Faludi’s ‘Backlash.’ All the books will be free to download from either my shared files or they’re already linked as documents online.
If you haven’t already, take a look at the tab and download the book. ‘Backlash’ is important because it puts the Men’s Rights movement into perspective. It’s nothing new. Whenever women got some power, even the tiniest bit, there were groups of men who got in a gaggle and hurled misogyny at those women. In my opinion, it’s even worse today with the advent of the internet but that’s a double edged sword.
While these groups use the internet to harass and intimidate women online and offline, we can use it to help those women who are targeted. A tool is only as good as its user.
Download the book and let me know what you think about page v. sister blog for a book club. I will take requests for books but they have to be feminist and have to be freely available.
