The Feminist Tea Party is a symposium series in which invited speakers discuss what 'practical feminism' means to them, attendees join in the discussion, and everyone has cake. Previous hosts include Trestle Gallery and Abrons Art Center.
Artist Megan 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.
Megan Piontkowski is an artist and illustrator living and working in Brooklyn. Since November 9th, 2016, she has become much more politically involved than ever before.
