“Intersectionality: Everyone Says It, But How Many People Mean It?”
Currently the executive editor of Teen Vogue, this author, activist and rabblerouser has been on the leading edge of feminism, race, online movement-building — and yes, sex — in the 21st century for well over a decade.
As the co-editor of Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance and Revolution, and the author of Outdated: Why Dating is Ruining Your Love Life, Samhita likes to flip culture on its head. Whether it’s taking on what she calls the “romantic industrial complex,” or deconstructing criticisms of the laetest Beyonce video, Samhita’s take is always brazen, brilliant and never fails to surprise you. Samhita also is the former senior editorial dirctor of culture and identities at Mic and former executive editor of the popular website Feministing.com. Her commentary has been featured in major publications. She received the Champion of Sexual Literacy Award by the National Sexuality Resource Center in 2008 and a Hillman Prize in 2011 for Excellence in Blog Journalism.
