This series of consciousness-raising study groups is for women who want to understand basic truths and political causes of the unfairness in our daily lives; how Reproductive Justice and the social wage are the right of every woman; and how each woman can contribute as grassroots organizers.

The study group will meet every other week beginning Monday, January 26th to discuss the topics outlined below. Each meeting will include a Consciousness-Raising (CR) as well as a discussion of assigned readings. Participants are expected to have read and prepared CR testimony in advance of each study group. Participants will have the opportunity to alternate planning and leading topics by attending “mini-group” meetings.

The following topics will be covered:

  • The Pro-Woman Line and Radical Feminism
  • Reproductive Justice
  • Feminist Leadership
  • The Pro-Woman Line: Sex Roles and Brain Washing

We ask that study group participants commit to being in all study groups meetings and at least one “mini-group” meeting. This will allow women to learn together and build on materials week after week.
