WFF-Poynter Talk Given by Susan Faludi

Monday, April 22, 2013

On April 22 at 4:00 pm in LC 102, Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Susan Faludi gave a WFF-Poynter talk entitled, “Is Feminism a Dysfunctional Family? Mothers, Sisters, Facebook Friends, and Other Difficult Relations.” The talk explored inter-generational feminist legacies, as well as how the tropes of “motherhood” and “sisterhood” are used in media representations of feminism. The WFF was thrilled to co-host this lecture, which garnered a large and engaged audience.

Susan Faludi is the bestselling author of Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women. A former reporter for The Wall Street Journal, she has written for many publications, including The New Yorker, Harper’s, The New York Times, and the Nation. She is also the author of Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man, and, most recently, The Terror Dream: Myth and Misogyny in an Insecure America.
