WGSS at Wake Forest University offers courses with a feminist interdisciplinary lens alongside outreach with human-to-human connections through which our students could realize the practical and emotional impact of feminist activism. We teach the whole student—mind, body, and spirit with the goal of transformation and renewal of the individual and the communities to which we belong. 

WGSS invites you to join us for a virtual book club! We will be reading Halle Hill’s highly acclaimed debut, Good Women.  Halle is an employee at Wake Forest University and she will join us to discuss her book.

Thursday, April 4, 2024
6:30-7:30 p.m.

“A darkly funny and deeply tender collection, Hill observes how place, blood-ties, generational trauma, desperation, obsessions, and boundaries (or lack thereof), influence the navigation of the worlds of twelve Black women in Appalachia.”
