Since the early 18th century the feminist movement has made waves in advancing the progress of women in the fight for gender equality; but the work is not over. To do this work well, there must be an understanding of the multiple identities that women hold and a commitment to center the issues experienced by those outside of the majority.

In observance of Women's Equality Day (Aug. 26), Charnessa Ridley, EMPA, Board President of NC Women United, will present Achieving Women's Equality through Intersectional Feminism.
