Dear Curious Souls,
We are wrapping up a great season of existentialism workshops and moving on to a topic both timely and closely connected to our recent studies: the existentialist feminism of Simone de Beauvoir.
Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex famously declared that "one is not born, but rather becomes, a woman," and showed in painstaking detail how women are trained from early childhood to accept and perform their role as the inferior "other" in society.
By reading sections of The Second Sex in light of the current #metoo movement, we'll consider the ongoing challenges of liberation, and creatively experiment with practices in which we might assert and claim subject-hood for women.
Come with us to:
We'll meet three Saturday afternoons at World Cup Coffee, on NW Glisan in Portland, OR
March 31, April 7, and 14, 2018.
Learn more and register for our feminism workshop.
