The Feminist Tea Party Series, organized by Megan Piontkowski
December 11, 2014 - February 26, 2015

In collaboration with Abrons Arts Center, PARMER is proud to present The Feminist Tea Party, organized by artist Megan Piontkowski on Thursday, January 8th from 7:00-9:00pm. Piontkowski employs the term “Practical Feminism” to address her frustration with the sexism that she, and many women she knows, put up with on a daily basis both from strangers they encounters on the street and at the workplace, and even sometimes from our otherwise liberal friends and family. She wanted to create a space where both women and men could meet to share personal experiences and discuss practical strategies that they could use to address the problem of everyday sexism.
