Rebel Girls Book Club

By Harmony Birch and Maggie Collins
Are you tired of reading the same angsty hero narrative over and over again? So are we. That's why we're examining stories that feature rebellious heroines through an intersectional feminist lens. In this podcast, we will go deep into the latest bestsellers, comic books, and English class-worthy literature without taking ourselves too seriously. It's a book club for feminist literary nerds. So, grab a cup of tea, a cozy blanket, and come gab with us about your new favorite read.
