The Women's Building is thrilled to present Bay Area Women Activists: From the Ground to the Sky, our Fall installment of our Women's Speaker Series.
Our Women Speakers Series highlights dynamic women who have made important contributions to women's human rights, social justice, and gender equality. Launched in March 2017 with Gloria Steinem in conversation with Lateefah Simon, our second event features a panel of Bay Area women Activists. The panel will be moderated by GreenPeace USA Board President, Karen Topakian, arrested at the January inauguration for hanging the RESIST sign on the crane over the White House.
The evening will feature women in the Mission District documenting their dire living conditions, how citizens can get involved in the budget process, a city supervisor, a human rights lawyer, and women aerialists who illuminate the struggles of women through dance. We hope you will come away with new ideas, re-energized about your own activism, and inspired by the many ways women are working to improve our communities around the world.
