Good Feminist, Bad Feminist — Who Gets to Decide?
What is feminism, and is anyone doing it right? As the movement has gone mainstream and come under greater scrutiny, it seems any consensus on the meaning of “feminism” has been lost — but was there ever agreement on what it was? In this panel, a collection of leading thinkers will define feminism and attempt to answer what makes a good feminist in 2018. How can we get less angry (or should we be more angry)? How do we get more aligned (or was alignment ever part of the deal)? And just what is the future of the feminist movement?
