Imagine a future free of gender roles and stereotypes, where anatomy doesn’t influence one's destiny and women can make career, family and personal decisions without societal pressure, stigma or discrimination. In this future, we understand that equality is not about bolstering a gender or group into a position of privilege, but instead about liberating both women and men, by eliminating gender norms, fixed roles and the judgement that comes with living outside these societal constructs.
While this may seem a fantasy, EVE: Everyone Valuing Equality will be an evening of ideas exploring the realities women face in the United States today, and how to move toward a 21st century of equal opportunity regardless of gender and gender identity. Our lineup of women speakers will provide fresh perspectives on reinventing the status quo, and will challenge the audience to take part in the change necessary to make our country a better place for all people.
