In November, ‘More Magazine’ released a piece on Young Feminists today (read here: http://bit.ly/eNWhsq). The article was followed by a significant amount of press that allowed important conversations on womanhood to spread across the country.  A group of young feminists in Los Angeles recognized the importance of keeping the conversation going and have organized a panel/mixer on Young Feminism in Los Angeles.

______________

We will start the evening off at 6:30 with some eclectic music by the Sun Warshippers and then head into a panel discussion + Q&A with Young Feminists from the LA area.

Stay till 10pm to mingle with feminists, listen to a some cool beats, and meet new people!
