What Is Feminism Today?

Singer and social activist Annie Lennox gathered five “high-flying” women to discuss what feminism means to them and how the movement might inspire the next generation.

One member of Annie Lennox’s round table to discuss what feminism means today was the singer Beverly Knight: “It’s interesting that in the countries where women have the least power, the least equality, International Women’s Day is much more treasured. Here in Britain, with our excess of everything, the very things that are so precious that the Emmeline Pankhursts gave their spirit and their lives to, we take for granted. We don’t think about the struggle that other women have across the world.”
