A Truly Inclusive, Women-Led Movement: What’s Needed Next?

January’s Women’s March, the nation’s largest-ever demonstration, revealed great promise, but we have a long way to go before women of color, Indigenous women, LGBTQ people and people of all kinds feel welcomed. This panel of diverse leaders will explore what’s needed for this "movement of movements” to manifest its promise with power and sustainability, as well as the appropriate role of men in it. Hosted by author/activist Anneke Campbell. With: Lateefah Simon, President, Akonadi Foundation; Kate Kendell, leader of the National Center for Lesbian Rights; Betsy McKinney, founder/CEO of It’s Time Network; Alnoor Ladha, CEO of The Rules.
