Y+30: The Future of Women

Mar 28, 2011 · New York, United States of America

Nearly every day, headlines about the "end of men" and the inexorable rise of women are juxtaposed with stark facts about the pay gap and the lack of women at the upper echelons of power. Meanwhile, the Internet has changed our daily conversation of and by women of all ages, races, nationalities, and sexual orientations, about everything from pop culture to sexuality to politics. In thirty years, will we still be having the same debates about difference, discrimination, and forward development? What will it take to have more women in government, technology, and other places where we are underrepresented? How will the role of men change in tandem? This panel, focused on the voices of younger women, will take a stab at answering. 
Panelists: Rebecca Kousky (founder and Executive Director of Nest, a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the lives of women in developing countries), Kartina Richardson (contributor, Ebert Presents,filmmaker and founder of Mirrorfilm.org) Miriam Zoila Pérez (editor, Feministing; founder, Radical Doula; activist for LGBT issues and immigration rights). Moderator: Irin Carmon, staff writer at Jezebel.com.
