DESCRIPTION
The Feminist Tea Party is a symposium series in which invited speakers discuss what 'practical feminism' means to them, attendees join in the discussion, and everyone has cake. Previous hosts include Trestle Gallery and Abrons Art Center. http://feministteaparty.tumblr.com/

Artist Megan Piontkowski employs the term “Practical Feminism” to address her frustration with the sexism that she, and many women she knows, put up with on a daily basis both from strangers they encounters on the street and at the workplace, and even sometimes from our otherwise liberal friends and family. She wanted to create a space where both women and men could meet to share personal experiences and discuss practical strategies that they could use to address the problem of everyday sexism.

Speakers include -

Brittany Alston Caballero is a communications strategist, writer, speaker, and reproductive justice advocate. She has extensive experience developing and implementing innovative communications campaigns to improve the health and well-being of underserved populations, focusing on sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice.

Jerin Arifa is an award-winning activist, a first-generation Bangladeshi and Muslim-American feminist, and happily married woman to an atheist, Alaskan man. Jerin is a trailblazer who co-created the campus sexual assault policy for the largest urban public university in the nation. As the Founder and President of the National Organization for Women’s (NOW) inaugural virtual chapter, Young Feminists and Allies, Jerin mentors millennials across the country.

JoJo Li is an artist, set designer, and founding member of the community organizing group 2 Hours A Week. In the wake of the 2016 election, she and others who had given time and energy to the democratic campaign, decided that they needed a more long-term and sustainable way to engage with community, government, and politics. They created 2 Hours A Week, based on the idea that if you could divert just 2 hours ( from social media/internet time) to being in touch and engaged with your community, local politics, organizations, the federal government, etc, then it would make for a daily routine of civic engagement and ultimately a movement.
