#GAReads | Women May Not Be Leading Keynotes At CES, But They're Not Staying Silent
In late November, GenderAvenger issued an action alert to its members that called out CES for its lack of female keynote speakers. Although the group issued the same call to action last year (this will be the second year that no women are taking the keynote stage alone at CES), the alert took off this year. Gina Glantz, GenderAvenger's founder and president, says this was likely fueled in part by the momentum of 2017's social movements — the Women's March and Me Too.
"There's a lot of pent up desire and confidence about making change," Glantz told Refinery29. "When we put out this call, we not only got a response from our community, but also the corporate community."
