Women and Citizen Activism

A group of notable women writers engage the phenomenon of emerging citizen activists in our nation and world today. The exciting roster of panelists of “Women and Citizen Activism” includes: Eliza Griswold, author of the acclaimed recently published book Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America; Mona Eltahawy, a reporter who was brutally attacked in Egypt in 2011, an experience that shaped her life as an activist; and Anastasia Higgenbotham who covers social justice issues and writes children’s books. Jennifer Baumgardner is a reproductive rights activist, writer, and filmmaker.

“Women and Citizen Activism” is a Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend Event presented by the Forum @ St. Ann’s.
