This club is led by Feminist BFFs, a London collective which aims to bring academic Feminism together with the current surge of interest in Women's Rights. FBFFs are an inclusive group, looking to bring together feminists from different backgrounds.
October's Club will discuss 100 Women I Know, a collection of accounts of rape and sexual assault published by Break The Habit Press. The stories in this book are from women that the editor knows personally, but aims to bring together and foster solidarity between everyone who has been a victim of sexual violence.
By exposing the common threads in each story, 100 Women I Know demonstrates the need to redefine rape within society and to further the understanding of consent to help prevent young men and women from becoming perpetrators or survivors of sexual violence.
30% of money received from book sales will go towards funding educational workshops in schools.
