 "Let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons."

- Malala Yousafzai

As an organization focusing on reproductive health - through healthcare, sexuality education, and advocacy - we felt it was important to develop additional ways to engage our community of supporters in conversation. We hope this forum will provide each of you with an opportunity to stay engaged with PPTNM and feminism in an atmosphere where feminists of all types can learn, share, and grow together.

In Memphis, you can also request to join our group on Facebook to see upcoming events, book giveaways, reading suggestions, and other Feminist Book Club conversations. A list of upcoming and past Memphis Feminist Book Club events is listed below. 

In Knoxville, the Knoxville Feminist Action Brigade (KFAB), a PPTNM Action Council, hosts quarterly book club events. For more information on upcoming events, please visit the KFAB Facebook page
