The second meeting of the year was led by Jen Ely. Amongst the issues discussed were what our understanding of Feminism is, and the negative perceptions that the “F” word (Feminism) has. Laci Green raises some of the issues associated with the word “feminist”.

There was some discussion about the connotations of the words “Women” and “Ladies” and the notion that the phrase”…like a girl” is insulting.

The discussion shifted to a discussion of the marginalisation and and hurt that heteronormative assumptions being imposed on women cause.
