ALLISON YARROW, 90s Bitch

In 90s Bitch, award-winning journalist and National Magazine Award finalist Allison Yarrow tells the real story of women in the 1990s, exploring how they were maligned by the media, vilified by popular culture, and objectified in the marketplace. Trailblazers like Hillary Clinton, Anita Hill, and Marcia Clark were undermined. Newsmakers like Monica Lewinsky were shamed and misunderstood. The advent of the 24-hour news cycle reinforced society’s deeply entrenched sexism. To understand 21st century sexism and end it for the next generation, Yarrow believes that we must revisit and interrogate this turbulent decade.

Allison Yarrow is an award-winning journalist and National Magazine Award finalist whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington PostVox, and many others. She was a TED resident and is a grantee of the International Women’s Media Foundation. She produced the Vice documentary “Misconception,” and has appeared on the Today show, MSNBC, NPR and more. Allison was raised in Macon, Georgia and lives in Brooklyn, New York.

EMMA GRAY, A Girl’s Guide to Joining the Resistance

After the 2016 presidential election, Emma Gray, executive women’s editor at HuffPost, put on her journalist’s hat and set out to get answers to the questions many women were wondering: How do I get involved? How do I stay engaged for the long term? How do I keep fighting while continuing to live my real life? To get answers, she spoke with prominent thought leaders, march organizers, senators, and long-time activists across political movements to find out the best ways to create sustainable action. Gray has created a guide for women of all ages to roll up their sleeves and resist the forces that are a threat to our rights.

Emma Gray is an executive women’s editor at Huffpost She is also the co-host of the “Bachelor”-themed podcast, “Here To Make Friends,” which was named a must-listen by The Daily Dot, and she has appeared as an expert on the Today Show, Good Morning America, The Insider and Entertainment Tonight. Emma is an alum of McGill University in Montreal, which is probably why she has such a soft spot for poutine and St. Viateur bagels.
