EVENT DETAILS

Please join us for this panel discussion with authors Vivian Gornick, Lauren Elkin, and Sarah Ladipo Manyika, moderated by Joanna Scutts of the Center for Women's History. This will be the first Center for Women's History event to be held on the newly reopened fourth floor of the museum. We're delighted to be partnering with PEN America, as part of "Gender and Power," the 2017 PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature.

The 19th-century symbol of modern city life was always a man. How do women on their own negotiate the city streets? From New York to Paris, Tokyo to Lagos, and Nairobi to San Francisco, three acclaimed writers discuss the perils and pleasures of navigating the city.

This event is free, but reservations are required. Visit the PEN World Voices Festival website to reserve your spot.
