Welcome to another exciting episode of Feminist Book Club: The Podcast! In this thought-provoking installment, we’re delving into two dynamic segments starting with a book review of The Quickening by Elizabeth Rush. Then stay tuned to listen in as Renee and Ashley ask themselves, “Can I be a feminist football fan?”.
The Quickening: A Review
Mariquita takes the reins as she reviews The Quickening by Elizabeth Rush. This book is an intellectual journey that explores the ethics of parenthood in the face of climate change, dives deep into the gender disparity within scientific pursuits, and takes readers on an exploration of the enigmatic continent of Antarctica. If you’ve ever dreamed of taking a literary adventure to the icy landscapes of Antarctica, this book may be your perfect companion.
Can I be a Feminist Football Fan?
As you’re likely already aware, Renee and Ashley are big sports fans, from the WNBA to the NFL and the Indy 500. But being a sports fan can feel really disgusting sometimes, particularly for those of us who love (American) football. Renee and Ashley dig into the conundrum of being a fan while also being a critical feminist consumer of sports entertainment.**Spoiler alert: It’s messy.
