Featured Session: How Women are Reclaiming Their Power to Advance Gender Equity

Date TBA

Join actress, activist and founder of 'I Weigh', Jameela Jamil, and CEO & President of the National Women’s Law Center, Fatima Goss Graves, for a candid conversation on how women are reclaiming their power, overcoming the shame stigma that society attaches to our lives, and what we can do to see that change in popular culture. This session will explore the backlash that the Time’s Up and #MeToo movement has been facing, how those issues and more are rooted in perpetuating shame, and what responsibility the entertainment industry has in working on intersecting issues core to women's lives, including sexual discrimination and harassment, reproductive rights, gender representation and equal pay.
