This year’s Femme Series is bigger and better, with even more special events—music, karaoke, new play-readings, and opportunities to mix and mingle. It continues the work from last year,with particular emphasis on deconstructing patriarchal language, expanding the limitations of the way gender is represented, and celebrating the intersectionality of the feminist perspective.
