This year's theme was Applied Feminism Today. Activists and academics shared their work on cutting-edge issues of feminist legal theory. Topics included human trafficking, eco-feminism, and guns and the Second Amendment, among others. The presentations featured both domestic and global perspectives, as well as interdisciplinary approaches for analyzing and achieving gender equity.
