FCP “temperature check”

Mark your calendars, feminist folk: Target date for book discussion is July 2!

If you haven’t already read the book, this gives you plenty of time to fit it in during your lunch breaks, whilst on the bus, right before bed, or just on one long sunny afternoon in your backyard or neighborhood park. I’ll be finishing it on the beaches of Puerto Rico and will be anxious to discuss it when I return!

In the meantime, check out Ariel Levy (this month’s author) on youtube! Here, Levy briefly discusses Sexual Pleasure vs. Performance. There are five or so like this, described as ‘Excerpts and outtakes from dutch documentary Beperkt Houdbaar with Ariel Levy, author of Female Chauvinist Pigs: Women and the Rise of Raunch Culture.‘ So if you’re in the camp that would like to read and participate, but you can’t find the time to sit down and actually read the darn thing, watch these videos to get the gist of her arguments. (Each video is only 1 – 2 minutes long, so you can easily squeeze them in between your viewings of the sneezing panda and what’s your dad like?)

Until then, T minus 10 days and counting…..
