Suffolk Feminist Book Club - BRIT(ish)

afua-hirsch-1-1-1600x900.jpg

For August we are reading BRIT(ish) by Afua Hirsch.

The Sunday Times bestseller that reveals the uncomfortable truth about race and identity in Britain today.

You're British. Your parents are British. Your partner, your children and most of your friends are British. So why do people keep asking where you're from? We are a nation in denial about our imperial past and the racism that plagues our present. Brit(ish) is Afua Hirsch's personal and provocative exploration of how this came to be - and an urgent call for change.

It doesn't matter if you've read the whole book, half of it or the first 10 pages, come and be part of the conversation. All are welcome.

Zoom link and password will be available a few days beforehand.

WEP Leeds 'Culture Club': September 2020.

A darkly comic and bitingly subversive take on life, love, race and family...

Leeds Branch of the Women's Equality Party will be holding the next in our series of 'Culture Club', our regular book and film discussion group, on Tuesday 8 September 2020 at 19:30 online via Zoom. 

Our book for this evening is Queenie, by Candice Carty-Williams. Queenie Jenkins is a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. She works at a national newspaper, where she's constantly forced to compare herself to her white middle-class peers. After a messy breakup from her long-term white boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places ... including several hazardous men who do a good job of occupying brain space and a bad job of affirming self-worth.

As Queenie careens from one questionable decision to another, she finds herself wondering, “What are you doing? Why are you doing it? Who do you want to be?”—all of the questions today’s woman must face in a world trying to answer them for her. 

We'll also be discussing the film, How to Build a Girl, which is available on Prime Video.

Dubbed the grungy British answer to A Devil Wears Prada, How to Build a Girl is a coming-of-age comedy film from the novel of the same name by Caitlin Moran. In the 1990s, 16-year-old Johanna Morrigan lives on a council estate in Wolverhampton with her aspiring rock star father Pat, exhausted mother Angie, brothers Krissi, Lupin and two infant twins. After a disastrous appearance on local TV crushes Johanna's literary ambitions, the film follows Johanna on her journey to becoming Dolly Wilde, music journalist, and growing up and discovering her sexuality.

You are welcome to join us, whether or not you have read the book or watched the film.
