Resistance In A Box

If it’s not intersectional, it’s not feminist.

Feminist Book Club is a community-driven monthly subscription box

that features a book of the month and gorgeous products from woman- and queer-owned small businesses.

Subscribers suggest titles for upcoming months and the community votes to decide which book will be in the next box. The books we choose may not be explicitly feminist but we read them through a feminist lens, guided by gender researcher and founder Renee Powers.

Self-care is an act of political warfare.

Audre Lorde reminds us that caring for oneself isn’t selfish, it’s an act of political warfare. We can’t show up to the revolution running on an empty gas tank. Each box includes self-care products from woman- and queer-owned businesses. We define self-care broadly as anything that brings you joy.

Previous boxes have featured products from City Girl Coffee (coffee!), Smitten Kitten (personal lubricant!), Bewitched Boneyard (crystal jewelry!), and more.

You can expect a wide variety of really cool products like hand-poured candles (aromatherapy is totally self-care), repurposed antique jewelry (sustainability is sexy), all-natural skincare (so our skin can glow as we burn down the patriarchy) and a custom protest-worthy tote bag (for carrying all your feminist literature to the march on Washington).

Members have the option of upgrading to a one-of-a-kind box adorned with a magazine collage in the spirit of riot grrrl zines of the 90s. Many subscribers display the collages for inspiration or find creative ways to repurpose their boxes.

Just like the wand chooses the wizard, we say the box collage chooses the book clubber.

Your goodies arrive at the beginning of each month in a work of art. Each box features a one-of-a-kind magazine collage in the spirit of riot grrrl zines of the 90s. Many subscribers display the collages for inspiration or find creative ways to repurpose their boxes.

Just like the wand chooses the wizard, we say the box collage chooses the book clubber.

Imagine a group of dangerous well-read women.

Subscribers connect all month long in a safe, supportive private discussion group and have the opportunity to join a live video chat discussion at the end of each month, all facilitated by founder Renee Powers (B.A., M.A., and A.B.D. in gender studies).

Sometimes the authors even join the chat and surprise us by drinking wine and wearing sweatpants, too. (Authors are real people after all!)
