What does it mean to be a feminist in this age of information technology?
From Beyoncé and The Lenny Letter, to #YesAllWomen and Bad Feminist, feminism is a trending topic on the Twitter feeds and in the dorm rooms of millennials across the country.
A panel of innovative female voices who look at pop culture, politics, race, gender, and everything in between, debunk the myth that millennials are lazy or narcissistic and discuss their generation’s developing embrace of feminism.
Panelists include Mallory Ortberg, co-founder of The Toast, Heben Nigatu, co-host of BuzzFeed’s Another Round, Lori Adelman, Executive Director of Partnerships at Feministing, and Susana Polo, founder of The Mary Sue.
Moderated by Angélique Roché, Senior Director, External Affairs at the Ms. Foundation.
