Why are there so few women in politics? Why is public space, whether in the street or on social media, still so hostile to women? Is the #MeToo movement signalling a real shift in society’s treatment of women?
From Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign to the quest for equal pay, and from the transgender movement to women internationally, what is the future of feminism?
As feminism finds itself at a crossroads, Globe and Mail columnist Elizabeth Renzetti joins the Salt Spring Forum in a wide-ranging discussion on Friday, April 13th at 7:30 PM at the Gulf Islands Secondary School.
Elizabeth Renzetti has written for the Globe and Mail from Toronto, Los Angeles, and London. Her new book, Shrewed: A Wry and Closely Observed Look at the Lives of Women and Girls, is a collection of essays that draws upon her decades of reporting on feminist issues.
Renzetti’s essays explore everything from harassment in the workplace, to Donald Trump, to interviews with women like Germaine Greer and Hilary Mantel, to reflections about her daughter’s future—and much more.
How far have women come? How far do they still have to go? What is the state of feminism today? What is the best way forward? This is your chance to discuss these questions and more with Elizabeth Renzetti!
Salt Spring Books will be selling copies of Shrewed at the event.
