Feminism, pop culture discussion at libraries

Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau’s Amy Peloff is set to visit three North Olympic Library System library branches to present “Feminism and Pop Culture.”

Peloff’s free presentations on what feminism means are all scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. They will be at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., on Monday; the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., on Tuesday, and the Clallam Bay Library on Wednesday.

“Over the past few years, the question ‘Are you a feminist?’ has become the new litmus test for young female celebrities.

“So what exactly do we mean when we talk about feminism?” according to a news release.

Drawing on television and movies from the past 40 years, although focusing primarily on current and recent examples, media scholar Amy Peloff will explore some of the fundamental principles of feminist thought and ask why we should care about popular culture’s presentation of these concepts.

This multimedia and interactive presentation provides an accessible way to learn about feminism and how to critically “read” popular media, the release said.
