The Feminism Telesummit

In this Telesummit, you will hear about diplomacy at the highest levels on women's rights, how Women's Studies Professors are changing worldviews, ancient history that bridges the gap between academia and grassroots education, journalism that focuses on women's health in African and African American communities, sustaining Feminism through lending libraries, how women farmers are changing agriculture, the connections between women's rights and animal rights, between environment and gender, and global cultural connections that are medicine for women's spirits.

Feminism and Sustainability are two Collective Quests that touch every aspect of our lives. Feminism has always brought hope and truth to whatever issue it touches. Feminism has greatly facilitated women’s complex experiences, actions, and solutions being examined and treated with the respect they deserve – linking women’s emancipation with the care of the earth, economics, education, health, justice, and world news, indeed every aspect of our lives.

We’ll talk about the Sustainability of Feminism, and the important role that Feminism plays in real, lasting, and global  sustainability. No matter what your experience or understanding of Feminism is, you will be strengthened -- and your resolve to build alliances for the future will be restored.


"Climate Change as a catalyst to transform our broken economic and cultural priorities. Inspiring movements that have already begun this process... Either we embrace radical change ourselves or radical changes will be visited upon our physical world. The status quo is no longer an option." Naomi Klein's newest book, This Changes Everything
