“I think that we have simplistic ways of measuring feminism’s success. And it’s often, ‘well Hillary Clinton ran for office, and we had Sarah Palin, and look at how many women Senators there are and look at how many women are university presidents and look at how many women are in corporate america, we have corporate CEOS.’ And I think that those examples are wonderful and they do show progress, but I don’t think that they reflect the status of the majority of women’s lives.”
— Amy Richards, Co-Foudner, Third Wave Feminism. This video and more, on MAKERS, holding what they claim is “the Largest Video Collection of Women’s Stories.”
Amy Richards, Gloria Steinem, Dyllan McGee and guests, will be at 92Y tomorrow evening for MAKERS: The Women Who Make America. Get your tickets now.
