Good gracious, what a busy weekend we have planned.

Our conference, "Feminism for What? Equality in the Workplace After Lean In" is tomorrow in New York City. It looks like we're sold out at this point, but if you'd like to watch the day's events from afar, you can do so on the livestream, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST on Saturday. Below is a link to Susan Faludi's essay that started it all.

Also on Saturday, our Washington, D.C. contingent (Thomas Frank, Chris Lehmann, and Jim Newell) will be at Politics & Prose bookstore at 6 p.m., talking about, among other things, our new anthology, No Future for You. Those guys can talk.

And! There are still a few tickets available for the great David Graeber v. Peter Thiel debate on nothing less than our very #Future, next Friday the 19th, in New York. Grab a ticket, read Graeber's essay that inspired it, and prepare your brains for a bout.

In the meantime, please enjoy some other salvos and posts below that you may have missed in the past week on The Baffler online.
