【每月一書】Emma Watson搞女性主義讀書會 頭炮推女權分子回憶錄

2016/1/11 — 14:12

向來關注人權尤其是婦女平權的荷里活女星Emma Watson,最近在Twitter發起網上讀書會,名為「Our Shared Shelf」。讀書會成立不足1周,已吸引7.4萬人加入。而Emma首本推薦的書目,是女權運動者Gloria Steinem在去年底出版的個人回憶錄《My Life on the Road》。

自2014年起成為聯合國世界婦女親善大使的Emma,上周四(1月7日)在Twitter成立相關讀書組,運作方式是每月選一本書來閱讀,然後在每月最後一星期討論。Emma會在網上提問,或者引述書中的一些金句,甚至希望該書的作者一起參與討論。

她及後在Facebook補充指,「由於我在聯合國婦女署(UN Women)的工作所需,我開始大量閱讀許多關於平等的書籍和論文,這樣我才能勝任,其實有太多很好的東西!有趣的、有啟發性的、悲傷的、令人深思的、賦權的!我已經發現太多了,有時候,我覺得我的頭都要爆炸了...... 我決定開始一個女性主義讀書會,因為我想分享我所學習到的,也想聽聽你們的想法。」

As part of my work with UN Women, I have started reading as many books and essays about equality as I can get my hands on. There is so much amazing stuff out there! Funny, inspiring, sad, thought-provoking, empowering! I’ve been discovering so much that, at times, I’ve felt like my head was about to explode… I decided to start a Feminist book club, as I want to share what I’m learning and hear your thoughts too.
The plan is to select and read a book every month, then discuss the work during the month’s last week (to give everyone time to read it!). I will post some questions/quotes to get things started, but I would love for this to grow into an open discussion with and between you all. Whenever possible I hope to have the author, or another prominent voice on the subject, join the conversation.
If you fancy it, please join up and participate. Everyone is welcome. I would be honoured!
