BOOK LAUNCH

Lauren McKeon's F-BOMB: Dispatches from the War on Feminism > NOVEMBER 8


Goose Lane Editions and Type Books invite you to the launch of 2017 F-BOMB: Dispatches from the War on Feminism.


From pop icons to working mothers, women are abandoning feminism in unprecedented numbers. Even scarier, they are also leading the charge to send it to its grave. Between women who say they don't need feminism and women who can't agree on what feminism should be, the challenges of fighting for gender equality have never been greater. F‑Bomb takes readers on a deeply fascinating journey into today’s anti-feminist universe, as Lauren McKeon explores generational attitudes, debates over inclusiveness, and differing views on the intersection of race, class, and gender.

 

Social activists and book lovers alike won’t want to miss F-Bomb dropping at one of Toronto’s beloved book havens. Called “a brilliant little chocolate box for bibliophiles” by the Globe and Mail, Type is an independent community bookstore that welcomes everyone to this free event.

 

There will be an author reading and book signing. Books will be available for purchase.
