Lori, Jos, and student panelist at a speaking event.

Wanna hang out?

“I loved that the speakers were down to earth and were easy for others to relate to. I have had nothing but rave reviews from those who were in attendance. My favorite part was the panel discussion because it brought outside perspectives to the issue of sexual violence on college campuses.” -Lindsay Moore, student organizer, Miami University

When I stay out too late with feminists at the Makers red carpet premiere…

…and I can barely blog, but I sure can rock some sunnies.

Last night I went to the premiere of Makers. Makers is a documentary about the American women’s movement. It’s also a video library that hopes to be the largest video library of women’s stories ever collected.

Spending the night hanging out with bad-ass feminists, including Vanessa, Courtney and Chloe, listening to Gloria Steinem talk about feminism, then and now, reassured me. It confirmed that we, the Feministing community, have helped to keep generations of feminism alive–growing, evolving and staying relevant. It felt good.

As Steinem said in conclusion to her speech at the screening quoting Paula Gunn Allen, “The root of oppression is the loss of memory.

The event and screening was ...

Awesome upcoming event: What does feminism have to do with men?

Do you have a gentleman in your life whom you would like to convert to the righteous and noble cause of feminism? Perhaps a young boy whom you would like to indoctrinate good and early? Have you found yourself trying to explain the concept of “privilege” to a man and thought, “Ugh, this is exhausting. I wish I could just hand him a book that would explain all of this so that I can go watch the most recent episode of Mad Men”?

Well, you can buy him a copy of The Guy’s Guide to Feminism, by Michael Kaufman and Michael Kimmel. It is that handy dandy book. It’s smart, simple, funny, and a great introduction to feminism designed specifically ...

Awesome upcoming event: Momentum

In about two weeks, I’m heading down to Washington, DC to participate in a conference that I’m so freaking excited about. It’s Momentum: Making waves in sexuality, feminism and relationships.

It’s two days of panels and presentations about a hundred different aspects and iterations of sexuality, with a list of amazing presenters as long as my arm. You’ve got Dr. Joycelyn Elders, Jaclyn Friedman, Nancy Schwartzman, Audacia Ray, Abiola Abrams, and so many more. Check out the whole list of presenters here.

This conference is remarkably timely, and I’m sure the organizers couldn’t have imagined that in the two or three months leading up to it, we’d see events like the Susan G. Komen-Planned Parenthood debacle, the Limbaugh-Fluke to-do or the ...
