Feministing's Jessica Valenti to Speak at Meramec on March 1


  • Valenti
Well, gee, now that we can vote and hold jobs and get (almost) equal pay for equal work -- hell now that we have an entire month to honor women's history (a long one, too) -- does feminism still matter?

Jessica Valenti, founder and editor of the blog Feministing and author of the book Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters, says yes. She will be speaking at Meramec Community College on Why Feminism STILL Matters. The lecture will be on Monday, March 1, at 11 a.m. in the Meramec Theatre, kicking off St. Louis Community College's celebration of women's history month.
