“Women have always been an equal part of the past,” the American feminist Gloria Steinem once said. “We just haven’t been a part of history.” On May 10th, thousands of people will gather at events across the globe to discuss what it will take to get to a more gender-balanced world.
It’s part of the 50/50 global initiative launched by Tiffany Shlain, the Emmy-nominated filmmaker and founder of the Webby Awards. The centerpiece film for the global conversation will be 50/50, a 26-minute documentary by Shlain that explores the 10,000 year history of women and power.
Long Now is partnering with Tiffany Shlain for the San Francisco events on 50/50 Day. If you’re inspired to get involved or host a screening, sign up here. You can watch the full 50/50 documentary here.
Back in 02010, Shlain participated in our “Long Conversation” event in dialogue with environmentalist Paul Hawken and also with game designer Jane McGonigal.
