We’re extremely excited to be media sponsors of the 2015 National Young Feminist Leadership Conference happening in Arlington, VA (right outside of DC) this weekend. This awesome event will be a great opportunity for young feminists to network with like-minded ladies and learn about important issues women are facing in our country and around the world. Also, the lineup of badass female speakers in attendance is pretty incredible:
- Feminist theorist Kimberle Crenshaw (sa-woon)
- U.S. Representative Carolyn Maloney
- Activist Dolores Huerta
- Movement leaders Terry O’Neill, Katherine Spillar, Ellie Smeal, Darlene Nipper
- Plenty of amazing student leaders, young activists, and young professionals
All the feminist topics that get us fired up and inspired to make a difference will be covered: reproductive justice, eco-feminism, intersectionality, campus organizing tactics, violence against women, political organizing, social media and web-based activism, and more.
If you can make the dates, be sure to check it out for some serious feminist motivation (and a free copy of BUST’s latest issue!).
Advanced registration is closed, but attendees can register at the door. Event is held from March 21-23.
