The Feminist Initiative (F!) reveals the passion, pitfalls and promise of a diverse group of women working to establish the world’s first feminist political party in Sweden in the spring of 2005. Even in one of the most gender-equal societies in the world, the advancement of women’s agenda within the patriarchal establishment requires a revolution. Beginning from the innovative and inclusive decision to elect three party leaders rather than one, the film charts every trail-blazing step (and misstep) of the Feminist Initiative (F!) from their energetic start to the climactic moments of their inspiring, celebritysupported rally. Movie was made in Sweden, 2007, 97 min.; Director: Liz Weisberg

    This event is today, Sunday, at 2pm!

    It would be awesome if anyone could make it there.

    Or, if you know any third party activists in Long Island please let them know.

    It also has an added layer of interest, because we found a woman from Sweden who actually works with F! to come speak. She is currently living in NYC and will make the trip out here to the burbs to speak.
