Taking Back What it Means to be a Feminist

Online

Join us for this special Jam Session with Jilly Badanes for a discussion on why our understanding of fighting for women’s rights has become what it is today and what we can do to #TakeBackFeminism.

So many people forget that the term “feminism" actually refers to the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes. Too often is becomes synonymous with criticism, man-hating, and exclusivity. The reality is that feminism in fact supports people of all backgrounds and supports diverse communities - and is at its core inclusive.

Given how long women have been fighting for our rights and the progress we’ve made so far, we forget that there is still more to be done — and that includes taking back what it means to be a feminist. Join us for this special Jam Session with Jilly Badanes, Analytics Consultant and Founder of Milk: a space for women to explore their authentic perspectives and celebrate their natural power - for a discussion on why our understanding of fighting for women’s rights has become what it is today and what we can do to #TakeBackFeminism.

This was great! I really enjoyed Jilly's lecture and she drove home that we women must take charge and must develop ourselves as strong women. I wish there was MORE encouragement to women to develop ourselves as a way towards equality and steer each other away from only complaining and protesting in hopes that we can change other peoples' perspective. I agree that the way we break the profiling, is to prove that we don't fit the profile. Thank you, Jilly!
