Men & Women as Allies, New York City
In partnership with Michael Kimmel and The Center for the Study of Men & Masculinities featured a panel moderated by Marianne Schnall and Michael Kimmel with Chloe Angyal, Abigail Disney, Carlos Andrés Gómez, Don McPherson, Esta Soler, and Niobe Way, this salon, hosted at the home of Abigail Disney, asked us to think about working together to support the changing paradigm of men and women's roles, and also announced the launch of the Men & Women as Allies initiative.
Like our second event in this series, "Women & Men as Allies: At Work and at Home" and previous FemSalons on the State of Feminism, Women & Money: Re-imagining Economics, Women & Peace, and Our Inner Lives, the room was filled with incredible people, including members of the Feminist.com board and advisory board, along with many longtime friends, supporters and colleagues.

The Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities The Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities was founded in 2013 at Stony Brook University — the first such center on the world dedicated to exploring men's lives and engaging men and boys for gender equality. Our mission is to foster a dialogue between researchers and activists working to engage men, and to inspire researchers to provide activists with work they need to be more effective. The Center runs seminars and develops activist-based research projects, and is planning a major conference in New York City in March, 2015.
And as always - thanks to all who joined us at the event! It was an inspiring evening and we were so happy to share it with our friends, colleagues and supporters.
This event was the launch event for Feminist.com’s "Women & Men as Allies" initiative. Stay tuned for more information about our plans for an ongoing event series and comprehensive Men & Women as Allies microsite and how you can support our work.
