"Politics and the F Word: Does Feminism Matter?"

"Politics and the F Word: Does Feminism Matter?" is featuring panelists Hillary Clinton Strategist Ann Lewis, Us Weekly Editor Janice Min, Teachers Union President Randi Weingarten, NYU Public Affairs SVP Lynne Brown and Community Board 1 Chair Julie Menin to talk about a number of issues surrounding the issue of women and politics. The discussion is much-needed. Yes, we have a female Speaker of the House and leading presidential candidate, but let's not forget that women still hold less than 25% of all elected offices in the U.S.

So if you're in town and want to come by and check out the (free!) feminist fun, here are the details:
