Whether you’ve read the book in entirety, skimmed a few chapters, or are just curious about the topics included, all are welcome for thoughtful conversation, Q&A sessions, and an opportunity to engage with the FemTech community.
Bring your favorite drinks or snacks. Zoom video is optional! This will be an informal, relaxed, and nourishing session. You will have an opportunity chat with other attendees on Zoom.
For this month’s FemTech Focus Book Club we’ll be discussing Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity by Julie Serano.
Julia Serano, a transsexual woman whose writing reflects her background as a lesbian transgender activist and professional biologist, shares her powerful experiences and observations – both pre- and post-transition – to reveal the ways in which fear, suspicion, and dismissiveness toward femininity shape our societal attitudes toward trans women, as well as gender and sexuality as a whole. In addition to debunking popular misconceptions about transsexuality, Serano makes the case that today’s feminists and transgender activists must work to embrace and empower femininity-in all of its wondrous forms.
IMPT: Please register for the event on eventbrite.
Day: Last Wednesday of every month
Time: 4PM PT/6PM CT/7PM ET
Event Format: Join the event via Zoom. Hosts, Susan and Karen, will lead the discussion into an open session where you can ask questions and engage with other attendees.
