Feminist Book Club at the Central European University

We’ll explore diverse perspectives, challenge existing narratives, and spark meaningful conversations about feminist topics and gender-based violence. Whether you’re a seasoned activist, an academic in the field or just starting your journey, there’s a place for you in our supportive and inclusive community. 

Share your insights, questions, and reactions as we unpack the texts together. No judgment, just open minds and respectful dialogue!  

Meet fellow readers and make new friends from within CEU and outside who share your passion for social justice and intellectual exploration.  

When?  19.2., 18.3., 22.4., 27.5., 17.6.
