Feminism- a movement which originally advocated for the pursuit of the equality, has become broader, deeper, and more diverse.
As feminism has also become caricatured and diluted, its seat at society's table seems to have been replaced by a contradicting political and pluralistic discourse called post-feminism.
Post-feminism serves as a new form of female empowerment regarding the changed relations between feminism, popular culture and feminimity. However, products of post-feminism such as the topless protestors of Femen and the pussy hats of the Women's March on Washington have a tendency to alienate itself from other equal rights movements.
So just how good is post-feminism? How bad is it? These are the questions we will be debating with our panel members at this event. How will post-feminism impact with the future of our society is an important question we need to ask ourselves, as it has the power to either unite or divide us in the quest for equality.
