On March 25, we held our latest BAM Book Jam featuring the book "White Feminism: From the Suffragettes to Influencers and Who They Leave Behind," written by Koa Beck, former editor-in-chief of Jezebel. Koa Beck answered questions about why white feminism is not the way forward for liberating women, how other movements have paved the way, and why the catchphrase of “white feminism” needs a complete reframing for 60 minutes straight. Be sure watch the recording below. Thank you to everyone for your questions and participation!
Here are some of the top BAM Book Jam tweets and words of advice from Koa Beck. If you want the full scoop, check out the recording of the webinar above.

@Koalani: "#GirlBoss and such did 'open up feminism' (depending on how you look at it) to a sector of women who wouldn't care about things like wage gap. In that moment, it was suddenly that 'I'm a woman who wants to make a lot of money; I'm a feminist'" #BAMbookjam— BAM (@BAMtheagency) March 25, 2021
