fp gala 2013


Here’s a few blurry iPhone photos captured by some of the FP interns at Monday night’s 2013 Feminist Press Annual Benefit Dinner and Gala event.

1. Rock Legend Joan Jett with Debbie Storey, Chief Diversity Officer and Senior Vice President, Talent for AT&T and the Feminist Press 2013 Gala’s Integrity Honoree.

2. Joan Jett presenting musician, activist and Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, The Julie Ruin), with her 2013 Inspiration Honoree award.

3. Joan Jett speaking onstage while presenting the 2013 Feminist Press Gala Honoree Awards to Kathleen Hanna, Debbie Storey, Gillian Small (Vice Chancellor for Research, The City University of New York and the Insight Honoree), and Michaela Angela Davis (Activist and Writer, and the 2013 Empowerment Honoree. Unfortunately not pictured.)

4. A Feminist Press intern whose first concert was seeing Joan Jett and the Blackhearts as a teenager getting the photo opportunity of a lifetime (with unfortunate demon eyes…still worth it).
