Women Money Power

I attended the Women Money Power Forum today. It was hosted by the Feminist Majority Foundation. The guest speakers were wonderful. Sandra Fluke's speech really stood out to me. She explained that the recent attack on women's reproductive rights has proven that we are not living in a post-feminist world. I am glad she made that point because several people I know believe that feminism isn't necessary any more. Many people think that men and women are equal because women can vote, have careers and live on their own. Well, we have a long way to go before men and women are truly equal. The forum today gave me hope that we are headed in the right direction.
