“The Future is Female” Festival was created by writer Mya Kagin. Instead of merely honoring women’s history in March, the festival will celebrate women’s futures. Following the election, Mya was struck by the phrase, “The Future Is Female,” which recently emerged and has taken on great significance during and after the election with many women re-contextualizing the phrase into their own modern interpretation. By participating in this joint venture, our voices are magnified and we can create a larger impact across the country.
Strength in numbers — Stronger Together.
