How often are young women constrained by their gender? What if they had the confidence to speak (or write) up against derisive and discriminatory language?

Okay, I feel so strongly about this. I’m fiercely proud to be a part of this program. The details of my session are below. But please take a look at the program and tell me that that isn’t the most exciting line-up of speakers and workshops and panels you’ve ever seen (Clementine Ford. Emily Maguire. These women are my SUPER HEROES). I can’t wait. I want to go to everything. I want the world to change. I want YOU to find your VOICE. Please come.
