PEN World Voices Festival: Legacies: Militancy and Sisterhood

Thursday, May 4, 2017 @ 7:30 pm

The women’s movement has never felt more relevant—and more in need of critical reassessment. Writers Honor Moore and Alix Kates Shulman, co-editors of the forthcoming Library of America anthology Writing the Women’s Movement, and Pulitzer Prize–winning author Margo Jefferson (co-founder of the National Black Feminist Organization) discuss the ongoing legacy of second-wave feminism with writer, critic, and Jezebel founder Anna Holmes.

Co-presented with the New York Institute for the Humanities as part of the PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature.

Join more than 150 writers and artists from 40 different nations as the PEN World Voices Festival celebrates the transcendent power of literature to enable people to see beyond their differences with conversations, readings and workshops taking place throughout New York City. With Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Patti Smith, Salman Rushdie, Teju Cole, and others.
