Glasgow Feminist Network event

Hi everyone!

Here is the schedule for the GFN and Friends Day Event this coming Saturday from 10am - 4:30pm at the Glasgow Women's Library, 15 Berkeley Street. It is a 'drop in' event, so if you are not able to attend all of it, please come for some of it!
10:00 - 11:00 Doors Open - Welcoming people to the event, catching up/chatting, meeting new people and time to have a look at the stalls.

11:00 - 12:30 Book Reading and Discussion - Please bring along an excerpt from a favourite book, a poem or a magazine/newspaper article to read on the theme of women, why you became involved in feminism or why it's a meaningful text for you. People are welcome to attend the reading event just to listen.

12:30 - 13:30 Lunch - In addition to the cake stall and teas and coffees, we hope to have a small provision of savoury foods, so its advisable to bring some additional lunch for the day, theres a tesco's near by also.

13:30 - 16:00 Film showing and discussion - We will be showing Persepolis, a "Poignant coming-of-age story of a precocious and outspoken young Iranian girl that begins during the Islamic Revolution", followed by discussion. Please follow this IMDB link - - for more information.

In addition throughout the day there will be a clothes swap event where a table/area will be set up for people to bring any old clothes, shoes, bags etc to donate and swap with other items. We will also have a fundraising cake stall for the Oxfam 'Have a bit of a do' campaign - - money raised will directly support Oxfam's work with women through various projects e.g. ending violence against women in Pakistan. If people are able to bring cakes for the fundraising stall it would be greatly appreciated, fundraising and cakes is a winner!
Further to this there will be a visual art input at the event by one of GFN's members, and she will be bringing some art materials for those that are up for 'having a go'.

Please bring friends, readings, old clothes and cakes! The more the merrier applies to all of these : )

Looking forward to seeing lots of you there!
