Lindy West

Lindy West

Marines' Memorial Theatre, Second Floor
609 Sutter Street, San Francisco

In the age of #MeToo, where women are empowered to tell their truth rather than worry about the consequences of speaking out, there is hardly a better role model than best-selling author Lindy West. West first came to prominence as a young blogger with a no-holds-barred approach to topics such as feminism, racism, sexism and fat shaming. Her memoir (which includes her very public fight with her then boss Dan Savage for his fat-phobic articles) is the subject of the Hulu series “Shrill” starring Aidy Bryant.  

In her newest book, The Witches Are Coming, she flips the language of #MeToo critics on its head. West calls for a witch hunt to examine the chasm between who we are and who we think we are. She pulls no punches calling out the misogyny prevalent in the media and the exclusionary nature of American politics for women and minorities. By extolling the world-changing magic of truth, she shows us the only way out is through: through the uncomfortable reality of today’s polarized politics and through the pressure to stay silent on issues that matter. Join West at INFORUM as she pushes us to mold our culture for ourselves, rather than be molded by it.

Presented by Inforum: An Innovation Lab at the Commonwealth Club.  We host live events in San Francisco to connect the Bay Area’s most interesting people with inspiring thought leaders from tech, pop culture, politics, food, and business. Our panels and interviews go beyond the sound bite and offer deeper engagement with the world today.
