Women and Men as Allies launched at Abigail Disney's loft in 2015, followed by the 2015 Women & Men as Allies: At Work and At Home, and most recently the 2017 Women and Men as Allies: The Allies Agenda.
This series is co-hosted by The Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities and Feminist.com ( founders bios below) who came together to organize and produce a series of salons on the theme “Women and Men as Allies.” These panels are engaging and inspiring for both the thought-leader panelists and audience alike.
The Women and Men as Allies project seeks to create and sustain a community of people in New York who are committed to gender equality and women’s empowerment, and to engaging men towards that end.
