Join the feminism discussion with the LU Arts Book Club

The University’s Book Club will be meeting for an online discussion of Lola Olufemi’s book Feminism, Interrupted: Disrupting Power, on 5 April, 12.30pm-1.30pm.

In this book, Olufemi reclaims feminism from consumerism by exploring state violence against women, reproductive justice, transmisogyny, sex work, gendered Islamophobia and much more.

Olufemi is a black feminist writer and organiser from London. She is the co-author of A FLY Girl’s Guide to University (2019).
