Alt-Book Club

January's AFAR ABC (Alt-Book Club) Meeting is sure to be a lively one! Our theme is #Metoo and Morality in Politics.

The Autumn season brought with it a women-powered revolution across multiple sectors of our society and we would be remiss as a women-powered activism organization not to #getwoke about its implications. Another force for change has been White Evangelical women. As noteworthy supporters for both Trump and Moore (according to the exit polls), we must also #getwoke on their concerns. The selected thought pieces, I hope, will allow us to dive into both topics with a riveting discussion!

The articles we will be discussing are:

1. How Politics Might Sour the #Metoo Movement by R. Marie Griffith: https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/12/09/politics-sour-metoo-movement-harassment-216060

2. Amid A Sex Abuse Crisis, A New Conservative Christian Vision for Womanhood? Interview with Julie Roys
