Hashtag Feminism

For many, the #MeToo movement was a pivotal moment of activism that set the stage for important matters to be spoken about publicly. Unfortunately, what the movement has really revealed is that our culture is totally unable to define abuse and make victims whole. Join us as we discuss the ways in which women are encouraged to do that which causes harm by this movement.

“The Feminine Mystique” by Betty Friedan is often credited with kicking off the second wave of feminism. Both the book and the movement focused on freeing women from the constraints of being wives and mothers without ever think to ask, “Should we free women from being wives and mothers?”
