Our conference this fall, “Feminism for What? Equality in the Workplace After Lean In,” featured panel discussions exploring the merits and demerits of the self-help genre itself, the role of class divisions in feminist advancement, and how the compounding roles played by race, gender, and sexual identities affect the Lean In vision. Susan Faludi gave the keynote speech. You can learn more about the day’s events here, and watch the videos in full here.

We asked journalist and illustrator Susie Cagle to come and live-sketch the conference. Enjoy. – The Editors
