Feminist.com's FemSalon Series

Spring 2012: The State of Feminism

Hosted by Gloria Steinem at her home, Feminist.com’s Salon on Feminism – part of our FemSalon Series – raised funding for Feminist.com and featured feminist thought leaders, activists and media makers like Carol Gilligan, Devaki Jain, Kathy LeMay, Pat Mitchell, and Kathy Najimy, among others.

It was a room filled with incredible women, including members of the Feminist.com board and advisory board, along with many longtime friends, supporters and colleagues.
