Demos Forum on Sisterhood, Interrupted July 26

I'm back in NYC, trying to remember why I love it here, when California has the sun, the surf, the fresh air...

Well, yes, here is one reason: Four of my favorite organizations -- Demos, the National Council for Research on Women, the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership, and the Ms. Foundation -- are cosponsoring a forum on my book next Thursday. If you're in the NYC area, please come! The event will take place at the NYRAG offices located at 79 Fifth Ave (betw 15th and 16th Sts), 4th floor. It's free and open to the public, but registration is required. You can also register by calling 212-633-1405 x533. Please spread word by forwarding the invite, found here:

I'll give a talk based on my book, and panelists Desiree Flores and Dr. Mary S. Hartman will respond with discussion of the experiences of younger and older feminists in relationship to the movement and each other, how multiple generations of women can learn from one another's activism to bridge generational differences, and what the future of the feminist movement looks like. The event will be moderated by Shari Cohen, Director of the Demos Fellows Program and a very savvy lady. Refreshments provided!
