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 Monday 13th December 2021 at 7.30pm online via Zoom.
This month WE are reading 'Bloody Brilliant Women' by Cathy Newman, billed as 'a fresh, opinionated history of all the brilliant women you should have learned about in school but didn't'.
'For far too long, women's achievements have been airbrushed out of history. In this groundbreaking book, the first of its kind, Cathy Newman has done a bloody brilliant job of painting them back in bright, vivid colours. She has repaid the debt due by all of us to women pioneers of the past and created a treasure trove of inspiration for women of today and tomorrow. I just wish this book had been written when I was growing up.' - Nicola Sturgeon
'Powerful, poignant and often provoking - this book shines a light on the contribution of women of all ages, ethnicities, faiths and backgrounds who have helped to make our city and country so great. Cathy Newman narrates the stories of women who have helped shape the world in which we live today, by challenging gender stereotypes, smashing glass ceilings and blazing a trail for the next generation to follow. Eloquently written and hugely enjoyable to read.' - Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
We will also be (re)watching the film Thelma and Louise.
Come along to ‘Culture Club’ if you have read the book, watched the film or just want to have a chat. WE would love to see you there!
If you would like to read ahead, January’s book is 'Attack of the 50ft Women' by Catherine Mayer.
