You’ve probably heard about first, second and third-wave feminism. You know that movements change and evolve over time. This panel is about expanding what’s possible in the feminist movement by highlighting young leaders and activists and creating a space to envision the future of feminism. The millennial generation is the most diverse generation our country has seen. This panel will share data on millennial attitudes on a number of social issues that will impact 2016 and highlight voices of young activists doing the work and asserting the future of feminism. What will be the impact of feminism and the youth movement on the 2016 election?
