Humanities Washington's Think & Drink: Pretty Angry - Feminism and Protest Since 1968
Think and Drink events are free, hosted community conversations on provocative topics. Presented by Humanities Washington.

At the Miss America pageant in 1968, activists descended on Atlantic City to protest what they saw as the events objectification of women. Though the protesters only numbered several hundred, their ideas and outrageand the widely televised reach of the event they disruptedpropelled the next wave of feminism to the national spotlight, resulting in major changes to attitudes and laws.

Exactly fifty years later womens anger has taken a different form, this time focused less on public spectacles than private moments. Its a movement calling attention to sexual assault, harassment, and similar abuses that often happen in the quiet corners of offices, big box stores, and movie studios. The #MeToo movement is emerging as the tip of a new feminist moment, a movement that also includes the Womens March (considered the largest single-day protest in US history), and the unprecedented numbers of women running for office.

But as one of the organizers of the Miss America protest said, I thought that the things we accomplished would sticknot that they would be always in danger. Will #MeToo and other new efforts bring about lasting social changes, or are they mostly a hyped-up hashtag? Join us as we explore the last 50 years of womens political and social power in America. Featuring Amy Peloff, University of Washington professor; and Charmaine Slye, one of 21 organizers and MC of the 2017 Womxns March on Seattle. Moderated by Teresa Ciabattari, professor at Pacific Lutheran University.
