The question of where to go in terms of the feminist movement in the future with new media and the new millennium is a big one, and several people got together to plan a conference and brainstorming session around this concept. Feminism encompasses a broad range of ideals including gender equity, equal rights, pay equity, reproductive choice, and much more.
The challenge of the original feminist organizations as well as some of the newer ones is: where do we go now? The Fem 2.0 conference and online dialogue will hopefully provide some direction in this area.
I’ll be speaking on one of the panels about feminism in the media and how to help women’s organizations expand their outreach online. The conference is being held Monday, February 2nd at George Washington University in Washington, D.C..
