Avenger of the Week | Marilee Talkington: Actor, Director, Activist

Marilee Talkington

If you haven’t read this week’s blog post, go ahead and do that first. Then, come back and tune in to the 1:07:32 mark of this video to hear exactly why Marilee is our Avenger of the Week. When she’d had enough of the men on the World Science Festival panel talking over the one woman scientist, even mansplaining her own theories to her, Marilee spoke out and demanded that the moderator let her speak. Thank you to Avenger Megan Lynch for sharing this story with us.


When Marilee Talkington spoke out and demanded the panel moderator let a woman scientist speak, she earned Avenger of the Week status.

Avenger of the Week @AnArtistWarrior stood up and spoke out. Brave. Effective. #WSF17 #genderavenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/avenger-of-the-week-marilee-talkington-actor-director-activist
