In the past, the word feminism was taboo for many, but now, even Taylor Swift calls herself a feminist — and, according to Bitch magazine founder Andi Zeisler, that’s a huge problem. We Were Feminists Once is her ode to the true days of feminism. In a moderated conversation with Amelia Bonow (#Shoutyourabortion), she’ll give a historical and political overview of the term, and explain why the movement sold out. Zeisler argues that young women today pick and choose which aspects of feminism to support, to the detriment of more important issues (like reproductive rights). From the Spice Girls to the Bechdel test and even low-fat yogurt, Zeisler will shatter notions of current “marketplace feminism” and offer her advice on how to solve this problem.
