The Castro Theatre, 429 Castro Street, San Francisco, CA 94114
What is Gloria Steinem thinking about today in our era of #MeToo and intersectionality? How can today’s feminists learn from our foremothers, and vice versa? We celebrated an updated, third edition of Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, originally published in 1983 — a book that has sold over half a million copies, and counting. As author Susan Faludi (Backlash) put it, Outrageous Acts “will always be… a required feminist reader.” From satires to moving tributes, confessions (yes, the Playboy bunny essay is in here) and analyses, the book includes classics along with new material.
Steinem talked with artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez of CultureStrike, and Lauren Schiller, host of Inflection Point from KALW moderated the conversation.
