Political strategist, founder of GenderAvenger


GenderAvenger is dedicated to making sure women are represented in all facets of public discourse. It frequently makes headlines for its efforts to end “manels,” or all male panels, at events.

I am tired of waiting. I want my grandsons to grow up to be stars and to see women stars in the same places they appear. It won’t happen unless their mothers, their aunts, their grandmothers say ‘no’ to the assumption that women can be ‘separate’ and ‘equal.’
