Join us on Wednesday, December 6th at 5:30 for our next Cactus Book Club. This month’s discussion will be led by Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. We’re reading Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot by Mikki Kendall. “In this searing collection of essays, Mikki Kendall takes aim at the legitimacy of the modern feminist movement, arguing it has chronically failed to address the needs of all but a few women…Kendall has written a ferocious clarion call to all would-be feminists to live the true mandate of the movement in thought and deed”.
