Girlguiding Feminism Event: the F Word and Girls Today

On Tuesday 26 February Girlguiding hosted the first event in our new Girlguiding Explores series:  Feminism - the F Word and Girls Today.

The event brought our Advocates together with experts including the Guardian’s Jane Martinson, Kat Banyard from UK Feminista and the Editors of the Vagenda Blog, to discuss how girls view equality and feminism.

Many people got involved in the discussion on Twitter using #GirlguidingExplores and #TalkFeminism to let us know their views and to put questions to the panel.

Girlguiding live tweeted from the event and a Twitter stream was displayed in the room for everybody to see what you have to say. Tweets from the evening are displayed below:

You may remember that back in November our Chief Executive sparked a discussion over whether Girlguiding was the ‘Ultimate feminist organisation’. You can remind yourself here http://storify.com/Girlguiding/girlguiding-uk-the-ultimate-feminist-organisation
