“Self-empowerment and feminism have become branded pop-cultural trends and clickable keywords" – the word on the street as written by music critic Lindsay Zoladz in a recent issue of New York Mag. Sure, her statement is in response to the recent rift-heard-round-the-web between pop-icons Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj, but the sentiment also rings true beyond celebrity culture – some serious girl power messages are on the uprise in women's media outlets too.
When cracking open an issue of a women’s mag or logging onto sites that lead with ladies’ issues, this current moment of female empowerment in the media is undeniable. How are these outlets shaping the conversation of feminism in the 21st century? Is feminism alive in an earnest way in women’s media, or is it a strategy to sell more issues and garner more clicks?
Lady Boss, an initiative for women in creative industries to kick more ass at work, invites you to join an exciting conversation with leading women's media outlets about our current moment of female empowerment in the media and how they are shaping the future state of feminism and feminist ideals.
Hosted by Lady Boss.
