What are the most important issues facing women today? What does it mean to be a feminist in 2012? 

The rights and roles of women are at the forefront of political and cultural debate. The myth of "having it all" sparks a passionate response from working women and stay-at-home mothers alike. Issues of reproductive rights and gender equality are in the headlines every day. And politicians are spending more time discussing women's issues than they have in years. Where will this lead? Is there a war on women? 

Bring your mother, sisters, daughters and friends for this timely and powerful conversation with an iconic and expert panel.
