RISE Collective Review

The RISE Collective Review: A Young Feminist Book Review

The RISE Collective Review: A Young Feminist Book Review is a bi-weekly workshop offered every other Friday beginning January 8, 2021 from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. via Zoom.

Our review creates space for cis and trans young women and non-binary people who are interested in discussions that center the experiences of women.  Our review provides an opportunity for young writers to share their views and opinions based on the works with a feminist and social justice lens by Canadian and Indigenous feminist authors.

Below is list of works that we’ve compiled for the review however, we encourage writers to let us know what they suggest reading.

  • Mind Spread Out of the Ground by Alicia Elliot
  • Resilience is Futile: The Life and Death and Life of Julie S. Lalonde
  • Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice, by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha (available on Audible Canada)
  • I’m Afraid of Men by Vivek Shraya
  • Policing Black Lives by Robin Maynard
  • All our Relations by Tanya Talaga
  • Disfigured: On Fairy Tales, Disability and Making Space by Amanda Leduc

The only requirements are that the books must be written by a Canadian or Indigenous author of a marginalized gender, including cis and trans women and authors that identify as non-binary.

Our RISE Collective Reviews are made possible thanks to YWCA Canada and the Government of Canada.
