Revolution From Within
featuring Gloria Steinem
with Jamia Wilson, Amber Ryan & Antoinette Klatzky
For decades, Gloria Steinem has been on a journey to create personal and social change, urging women to tap into their inner strength. Our revolution begins within, and when we come together with other women to encourage, listen, share and connect, we ignite true change—in ourselves and each other.
“We need to make alternate families of small groups of women who support each other, talk to each other regularly, can speak their truths and their experiences and find they’re not alone in them,” says Gloria.
For the launch of our Women Together Spring Series, we are especially excited to welcome Gloria, along with movement builder and storyteller, Jamia Wilson. We invite you to participate in this extraordinary daylong event either online via our specially designed live-stream experience or in person at the Eileen Fisher Learning Lab in Irvington, NY.
Let’s create the change we want to see in the world. Together.
Join Online Via Live-Stream
Our unique live-stream platform lets you feel immersed in the full-day event as you participate with the larger community of online participants. Whether you’re joining solo or with a group of friends, you’ll be connected to the day’s activities, including live Q&A and small-group breakouts.
Online or In Person
Each event in the Women Together Series features these three elements. Whether you join in person or online you will have opportunities to connect with other participants, learn and try new practices that support the day’s experience and spend time moving.
