They asked me to talk about “A Politically Incorrect Feminist” and it drew almost 100 people to the Council headquarters. They were a sweet, sharp, and savvy group. Everyone looked familiar—but really, I did not know anyone personally. It was an upper West side gathering of strongly held opinions. I talked about feminism, both then and now—and was then asked about feminism but also about anti-Semitism and Israel. I thank Natalie Katz, Priscilla Balch, and my old high school classmates, Sue Shames, whose idea this all was. Thank you to one and all for a lovely and lively afternoon.
