Feminist read-in

May 30th, 2006     by Melinda Mattos     Comments

This just in from The Miss G Project:

“On June 6th, you and yours are cordially invited to the very big, very bold “Feminist Read-In” at Queen’s Park in Toronto. Be there at 11 a.m. and head out whenever the music stops or the sun goes down.

What’s a Read-In you ask? Imagine your typical sit-in, but without the force-feeding and free love. Supporters of the project from everywhere and anywhere are invited to join us on the front lawn of Queen’s Park to demonstrate for change and to show the government what we want to see in education — feminist and queer-positive literature, and women’s histories.

Bring your books, your blankies, your friends and family. We want hundreds — nay, thousands there! The day will be complete with solidarity-enhancing entertainment to dazzle the eye and warm the heart, including musical performances (more details on that to come), poetry readings (such as from most fabulous up-and-comer Tanis Rideout), and book readings by some of the women authors who matter to us. It will be the fabulous, feminist, education-focused, all-ages, geek-chic, refined but riotous, irreverent-to-the-bone Woodstock of our times.”
