A lost feminist utopia? Why yes please!

Borrowed from a friend, this novel was written in 1915! In it, a utopian society is discovered solely composed of women who are able to reproduce without men.

Hibernation for now. Work and other things very stressful and I just can‘t read about these men anymore who‘s only thoughts in life are to rape and murder women 🥲 you have to be in a very good place to read this. Like being bludgeoned with hate.

GingerAntics Oh my god I don‘t think I could read that ever. I may never leave my house again. 6d
DrexEdit 😳 you are braver than I am! 6d
TrishB @GingerAntics @DrexEdit it‘s very hard Work 😞😞 6d

A soft pick for me. I find it amazing that this book was written over 100 years ago but, while some ideas are revolutionary, other themes are troubling; very much of their time.

I found it a little dry in places and the sudden ending was a let down but I‘m still glad I read it, hence the soft pick.

BarbaraBB I loved another by her 4w
Cinfhen I knew the author sounded familiar @BarbaraBB !!! Nice pick, Helen 😁 4w
squirrelbrain I have to say @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen - The Yellow Wallpaper was a lot better than this one. 4w

4thhouseontheleft I read this years ago in a Women's Lit class, and also felt she was quite ahead of her time in certain areas. 4w
jenniferw88 Have you done the #booked2022 prompt about a #nonpatriarchalsociety? This would work for that too! I'm doubling up my read for #pop22 and #booked2022 4w
squirrelbrain I already did that prompt @jenniferw88 🤦‍♀️ - I went down the eco-feminist route instead so I can‘t double-dip it! 4w
squirrelbrain Some parts could have been written now couldn‘t they? @4thhouseontheleft I also thought it was interesting she chose to write from a male POV. 4w
jenniferw88 @squirrelbrain ok, just thought I'd mention it if you hadn't! 😘 4w
KarenUK So glad you are in the #pop22 club! I didn‘t realize! I‘ll be tagging you too 😘 (edited) 4w
squirrelbrain I wasn‘t @KarenUK - trying not to do too many challenges this year. But then I realised I‘d read quite a lot of the prompts….so here I am! 3w

Here is my #winter selection for #booked2022 which allowed me to read fairly diversely picking up books that I'd meant to read for a while ( the girls, and woman on the edge of time), returning to a series I enjoy (mandarin dress), a favourite novelists memoir( I am, I am), one from my unread pile (thin air) and a book new to me from a black owned press (living the dream). Not started spring yet but having a think about suitable options.

Today‘s #SavvySettings prompt is Prison. Some of Angela Davis‘s speeches criticizing the American prison system are included in this book.

Excellent! I loved the dual timeline. In the present, a woman recovering from a painful life shock stumbles upon an unexpected history mystery. In the past, a woman dealing in poisons to help women lives out said history mystery. Definitely not my usual kind of book, but I‘m glad I read it. Content warnings for infidelity, poisoning, miscarriage, sexual assault, suicide, and death. #Fiction #Poison #HistoricalFiction #Feminist

So glad I found this book! The first part discusses the matriarchal societies that existed 25,000 years before the patriarchy of abrahamic religions; the second, how to take back our power through consciousness, rituals and community; the third, and biggest: politics. It is past time for womxn to be at the front. They (patriarchy) only have as much power over us as we let them. Think about what we need to do…to be, and stay—FREE.

JenniferEgnor @Come-read-with-me I think you‘d like this book. 2mo
Amiable @JenniferEgnor Three cheers to you as well! I volunteer in Providence, Rhode Island. 2mo
JenniferEgnor @Amiable I hope your state cares about its peoplx more than mine does. It‘s looking pretty grim here for bodily autonomy. 2mo
Amiable @JenniferEgnor I actually live in CT, which codified expanded access years ago. Abortion rights will remain here no matter what happens at the federal level. RI just passed legislation in 2019 to protect abortion rights. But I drive an hour to volunteer in RI because the clinic there was/is in greater need of volunteers. The politics in Providence are heavily influenced by the Catholic Church and the protestors are more vitriolic there. 😖 2mo
Amiable To be brutally frank, what‘s going on in states like yours are the reason why I will never live further south than Maryland/Delaware-ish. My heart hurts for you guys. Keep up the good fight! 💪🏼I‘d love to chat more about how all of it is going to shake out nationally if you‘re game —email me at AmyBF45 at gmail.com (edited) 2mo
JenniferEgnor @Amiable I have a friend who used to escort with me that moved to CO last year. She wanted to live where it‘s safe to make choices. They are about to pass their own WHPA there, Vermont is writing it into their state constitution. Us in the south…we are fucked and there is virtually no democracy at all. Emailing you tonight! If you look through my previous posts, you‘ll see some photos of our protestors. And more great books for choice💕🌻 (edited) 2mo
JenniferEgnor @Amiable I tried emailing you, it just came back to me. 1mo
