Spring 2024 Reading Group

Bonobo Sisterhood

Prerequisite: None

Exam Type: No Exam

The Bonobo Sisterhood reading group explores the power and potential of female alliances to disrupt patriarchal systems. Through a legal, political, social, cultural and economic lens, we ask what lessons the bonobos-our close primate relatives who share 98.7% of our DNA—offer humans for creating a society free of male sexual coercion. Reading material will be the book The Bonobo Sisterhood: Revolution through Female Alliances, (Rosenfeld 2022).

Note: This reading group will meet on the following dates: January 25, February 8, February 22, March 7, March 28, April 11.
