Always dynamic, often explosive, a town hall meeting is a public forum for the rigorous exchange of ideas. We expect this meeting to be no exception when a panel of game-changers take to the stage to offer their views on feminism today.
Whether advocating as an artist, student, filmmaker, or youth network leader, each panelists brings an outspoken and determined voice to the table, backed up by action and achievements. They were selected by an equally inspiring committee of entrepreneurs, policy makers, and executive leaders between the ages of 16 to 27, invited by Luminato to suggest exemplary people whose contribution to the status of women they deeply admire.
Building on the historic achievements of the suffragettes the second wave feminists burst forth vociferously in the 1970s making significant gains in the fight for equality. Now, with intersectionality as its driving concern, the third wave, and more recently a fourth, defined by their use of technology and the hashtag call to arms, is themselves taking on the existing power structures. Today it’s the Millenials’ turn to figure out how to deal with and break down the systems and structures they’ve inherited, and finally transform society for good.
