Speaking of Feminism

September 27, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

In collaboration with UNC-Chapel Hill’s Center for the Study of the American South and General Alumni Association 

This event will be held at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill, 752 MLK Jr Blvd, Chapel Hill, 27514

From the Women’s Marches to the #MeToo movement, it is clear that feminist activism is still alive and well in the 21st century. But how does a new generation of activists understand the work of the movement today? Rachel F. Seidman, Director of the Southern Oral History Program in UNC-Chapel Hill’s Center for the Study of the American South, presents insights from 25 feminist activists from around the United States in her new book, Speaking of Feminism: Today’s Activists on the Past, Present, and Future of the U.S. Women’s Movement. Join us for wine, cheese, and a conversation between Professor Seidman and one of the stars of her book, Ivanna Gonzalez, cofounder of the Who Needs Feminism campaign and deputy director of Blueprint NC. 

Free and open to the public. Copies of Speaking of Feminism: Today’s Activists on the Past, Present, and Future of the U.S. Women’s Movement will be available for purchase.
