The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer

April 6, 2018 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Wolitzer’s latest novel follows a young woman who gets groped at a frat party—a setup that seems perfectly attuned to the #MeToo moment. She soon befriends a Steinem-esque second-wave-feminist icon, and Wolitzer uses their relationship to build an incisive and compassionate look at a changing women’s-rights movement. How did the author hit upon such timely subject matter? What does she think about recent sexual-harassment revelations? Head to this conversation between Wolitzer and the Washington Post’s Ron Charles to find out.
