Original post here - new post so folks don't miss the update. A few expressed interest in Right Wing Women, so let's read that.

Ebooks and PDFs of Dworkin's books can be found here. I figured I'd give it a week in case anyone wants to finish what they're reading now, and to give people a chance to obtain a paper copy if that's what they prefer.

Is everyone okay with a "read at your own pace" format, or should we try to stick to a schedule of a certain amount of chapters every couple days? I figured open pace might be more inclusive, but sticking to a schedule would make conversations easier to follow. I also know it's easier for some people to read with a deadline. I'm open to whatever!

Thank you for this. I’m trying to finish The Second Sex rn (I hope you do that soon), so appreciate the heads up.

(The Second Sex not being Dworkin, but I wouldn’t want to step on toes or dilute by starting another book-club thing if you’re doing one)

I've been wanting to reread that! I read it when I was 18 or so, and I felt like the scales fell from my eyes. Maybe we could do that one next. Right Wing Women is pretty short.

I’d read bits before, but not the History and Myth sections at all, and honestly it’s making me so angry on her behalf that anyone presents this book as being in support of the idea of ‘woman’ as a mythical concept rather than grounded in our physical bodies.

just added this book to my want-to-read list yesterday! I'd definitely read that one next!
