In partnership with Peace is Loud and featuring a conversation with filmmaker Abigail Disney and women peacemakers -- including Nobel Laureate Jody Williams, WILPF Secretary General Madeleine Rees, AWID Executive Director, Lydia Alpízar Durán, World YWCA General Secretary Nyaradzayi Gumbonzvanda and the Honorable Shinkai Karokhail, this salon asked us to think differently about the way we approach conflict, and women’s roles as agents of change. Hosted at the home of Abigail Disney, we were moved, inspired and challenged to continue to work for positive change in our increasingly complex world.
On May 16, 2013, we celebrated our fourth FemSalon: Our Inner Lives: Spirit, Faith and Action - featuring groundbreaking discussion, music and celebration of multifaith diversity with such phenomenal women as Marianne Williamson, India Arie, Sister Joan Chittister, Elizabeth Lesser, Maria Ebrahimji, Rabbi Jill Hammer, Helen LaKelly Hunt, Chung Hyun Kyung, and Rev. Jacqui Lewis! The event was a fundraiser for Feminist.com and Feminist.com's initiative Our Inner Lives. For more information on the Our Inner Lives FemSalon, click here. Video, pictures and other resources coming soon!
Stay tuned for more upcoming events to be announced on our 2013 FemSalon schedule!
