Feminist Review 17 civer

Courtesy Feminist Review

Join the Feminist Duration Reading Group (FDRG) for a talk by Joan Anim-Addo and a reading from her article ‘Activist-mothers maybe, sisters surely? Black British feminism, absence and transformation’, published in Feminist Review in 2014.

Also woven into the session are short texts from the 1984 Feminist Review issue ‘Many Voices One Chant,’ which highlight Black feminist perspectives from the past 30 years.

This session of the FDRG aims to explore diverse, intertextual and intergenerational perspectives on reading, writing, publishing, collective practice and allyship.

Led by Ehryn Torrell, and organised in dialogue with FDRG participants Beth Bramisch and Katrin Lock, the evening aims to embody feminist practice. The event welcomes and encourages many voices, invites deep listening and offers time and space for group discussion.


Book a free place here. 


No advance reading is required as texts are read aloud on the evening, however the texts are available to download here.


This session is part of the Feminist Duration Reading Group’s year-long residency at the SLG focused on UK feminist thought, activism and collectivity.

Formed in 2015, the FDRG explores under-known and under-appreciated feminist texts, movements and struggles from outside the Anglo-American feminist tradition.

Joan Anim-Addo, born in Grenada and based in London, is an academic, poet, playwright and publisher, and Professor of Caribbean Literature and Culture at Goldsmiths, University of London.
