Crowdsourced Feminist Convention Being Organized by Eyezine

Last August, I gave an interview to the Indian independent arts and culture magazine Eyezine.  Now the people at Eyezine are organizing a feminist convention, titled “Hysteria”, to be held in Kolkata in January of 2015.  A woman is raped every 32 minutes in India, and once almost every hour a woman there is murdered. Something has to be done about this grotesque state of affairs, and this conference aimed at promoting gender tolerance and identifying gender discrimination seems like an important step towards effecting change.

The three-day convention is to be completely crowdfunded. Please take a moment to watch and then share Eyezine’s video promoting the conference https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJ9XpQzHz2M&noredirect=1

and please consider donating to this extremely worthy cause here:
