      EVENT DETAILS
      Jaclyn Friedman - Believe Me: How Trusting Women Can Change the World — in conversation with Soraya Chemaly and Tahir Duckett

      In 2008 Friedman, with Jessica Valenti, founder of Feministing.com, collaborated on the groundbreaking Yes Means Yes!, which confronted the rape culture and helped bring about new laws in two states. Their new book takes the process of meaningful change to the next step, asking what would happen if we believed women—and acted as though they matter? In this collection of essays a wide range of leading feminists answer this question, showing how we can reimagine the internet if we take online harassment seriously and save lives if we take action when Black women talk about pain. Friedman, host of Unscrewed, author of What You Really Want, and a frequent speaker, will be joined by Soraya Chemaly, author of Rage Becomes Her, and Tahir Duckett, founder and director of ReThink.
