Montreal launch and panel discussion for "Min Fami: Feminist Reflections on Identity, Space and Resistance"

Saturday, October 4, 2014 - 23:00 to Sunday, October 5, 2014 - 01:00

Inanna Publications and The Concordia Community Solidarity Co-op Bookstore invite you to to a book launch and panel discussion with contributors of "Min Fami: Arab Feminist Reflections on Identity, Space and Resistance" (Ghadeer Malek & Ghaida Moussa, eds). Authors include: Ghadeer Malek, Ghaida Moussa, Nayrouz Abu Hatoum, Maha Zimmo, and Ghada Chehade. Refreshments will be served. 

“In Min Fami, Ghadeer Malek and Ghaida Moussa have gathered together powerful literary and political analyses, moving fiction, personal essays, and visual art, fierce and loving poetry — work by Arab women from the world over — who inscribe this moment in its dense and hewn multiplicities, who refuse its violence and excavate its violent erasures, and holding faith with over one hundred years of Arab feminisms, who turn toward that which cannot be known, and that which yet must be faced. This book is extraordinary, passionate, and hopeful, even as it knows its work is battle and mourning as much as making a space for being and beauty.”
- Trish Salah, Author of Wanting in Arabic and Lyric Sexology, Vol. 1

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
