My Epic Feminist Dinner Party

Last night, sitting on the porch, my dad asked the age-old conversation starter… If you could have a dinner party and invite any 5 people from any time in history, who would you invite?  Yes, this question is cliché, but it does get you thinking.  And I’m pretty excited about my hypothetical list.  Imagine if this party could actually take place.

1. Alice Paul

2. Charlotte Perkins Gilman

3. Sojourner Truth

4. Emma Goldman

5. bell hooks

Who would you have at your party?
