It's going to be live!

Thanks to the work we three Parlour ladies and our awesome team of contributors have done over the last four years, there’s a serious voice of contemporary Feminism living on this website. We want life to be better for women from all walks of life, we celebrate our achievements and discuss our failures and have created a place where women around the world talk about their issues. To that end, Parlour is sponsoring the New York Caribbean Cultural Center’s Women of Power conference this Saturday, March 24 from 11:30am – 6pm at Harlem’s Dwyer Cultural Center. Yes, these Brooklyn girls are going to Harlem.

Check out Joan Morgan talking about what Feminism means to her and her historic book When Chickenheads Come Home To Roost as well as the Women of Power conference schedule and more details below! See you Saturday!
