feminist reading group

Sign up to your local lesbian library today!

Who: We, the mods at butches and femmes, are hosting our third match making event in celebration of reaching 1000 followers, in which we aim to match up all our bookworm lesbians based on their literary tastes! We hope to build upon our past experiences in hosting these events to make this a fantastic experience for everyone

How: First, read the Terms and Conditions which can be viewed below and found on our about page. Then simply fill out the lesbian library card application below and copy it into our submission box. Please include as much detail as you can! We will match lesbians based on similarities in literary tastes and writer/reader aesthetics AND we will post a list of reading groups, again based on literary tastes and aesthetics so you can all hang out and fangirl over your particular interests together. Once we have posted the groups it’s up to you to get in contact with one another, although we will happily provide help, advice, prompts and other useful resources for you should you need them.

Where: the event will happen right here on this blog! Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions or queries about the event and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Make sure to check back here for updates and announcements (we will be tagging any updates or information about the event with #lesbian library)

When: we will be accepting applications until 10:00pm April 21th 2017 GMT so make sure to send your form in before then. Pairs will be individually messaged the results and the reading group posts will go up on April 27th 2017 7:00pm (ish) GMT

Why: our intention is quite simply to help bookworm lesbians meet other bookworm lesbians (most of us being quite introverted) and hopefully find love and/or friendship. We do all the work for you!

Notes: The cover art used was created by mod w and the drawing is hers, although the photos used are public domain! Please, for the love of Patricia Highsmith, read our terms and conditions before submitting, thank you. Reblogs are appreciated.

i am the only girl in one (of two) of my philosophy modules but my MA supervisor is an inspiring feminist philosopher and she is awesome so i don’t even mind i am just fighting the good fight and i joined a feminist reading group and last night i went to a committee organizing reclaim the night and i am so incredibly exhausted from all the socializing that postgraduate life seems to entail that i could just crawl under my desk and not come out for a long time but instead here i am writing the longest run-on sentence to exist
