The definition of today's most popular f-word has become muddled. Is Beyoncé a feminist for singing about wanting to please her husband? If Lana Del Rey enjoys being submissive, is she not a feminist? To some, yes; to others, no. But, it's a conversation worth considering as we are seeing a shift in what defines a feminist.
From September 11 through the 27, New York's Hole gallery on the Bowery will play host to Future Feminism's latest work, The 13 Tenets of Future Feminism. For 13 days, The Hole will feature lectures, conferences, and performances that reflect three years of intensive retreats the collective has taken.
But, before all of that goes down, FF is throwing a concert at Webster Hall on September 7. The collective (comprised of Antony, Kembra Pfahler, Johanna Constantine, Bianca and Sierra Casady of CocoRosie) will get down to the sounds of disco-doom. Future Feminism's goal is to affirm archetypal feminine values, and the 13 tenants presented seek to dispel any mystery surrounding the term "feminist."
