VENUE: The New School Tishman Auditorium
ADDRESS: 63 5th Avenue New York, NY 10003
From the #MeToo movement to the continued fight for workplace equity and reproductive justice, we are in a moment of reckoning. As a society, we're confronting America's history of gender inequality and how it affects our everyday lives. Now, ahead of the 2020 presidential election, we want to understand how we can build a better future.
Women in the media are pivotal in shaping and amplifying the narrative of this critical moment. So as we gear up for this momentous election, we'll bring together some of today's leading journalists to tackle the biggest questions before us: How is the media industry changing as a result of women's voices? How do media narratives influence the way we think about women and power?
Join an extraordinary panel as we discuss the challenges—and hope—of achieving a more equal conversation.
