Book Club

The 50:50 NI Book Club exists to get more women reading about feminism and politics. The club reads one book per month on the theme of feminism, social justice or Northern Irish politics.

This Month’s Book

This Month’s book is “The Trans-Gender Issue:An Argument for Justice” by Shon Faye

In this powerful new book, Shon Faye reclaims the idea of the ‘transgender issue’ to uncover the reality of what it means to be trans in a transphobic society. In doing so, she provides a compelling, wide-ranging analysis of trans lives from youth to old age, exploring work, family, housing, healthcare, the prison system and trans participation in the LGBTQ+ and feminist communities, in contemporary Britain and beyond.
