Feminism is the topic of the fourth annual Festival Albertine! [fr]
Gloria Steinem, Christiane Taubira, Laure Adler, Houda Benyamina and many others are discussing feminism and gender equality at Festival Albertine in New York!
Curated by pioneering feminist writers and activists Gloria Steinem and Robin Morgan, the fourth annual Festival Albertine is taking place from November 1st through 5th, 2017 and offers an opportunity to realize a vital exchange of ideas between leading francophone and U.S.-based thinkers and artists.
While the U.S. and France have long produced some of the most influential feminist thinkers and continue to do so, their sometimes diverging perspectives on questions surrounding issues such as religion, childcare, and work-life balance, together with their commonalities, will offer material for fruitful debate.
By bringing together writers, thinkers and artists from both sides of the Atlantic, including Christiane Taubira, Roxane Gay, Laure Adler, Houda Benyamina, Marie Darrieussecq, Marie de Cenival, Caroline de Haas, Anne Garreta, Cecile Richard and Delphine Horvilleur, the festival aims to discuss feminism through the lens of such topics as politics, literature, the professional world, religion, media and the visual arts.
Events will take place at Albertine Books, located in the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York. Festival Albertine is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and works on a first-come, first-serve basis. The event will be streamed live at livestream.com/frenchembassy.
