MSNBC reporter Irin Carmon to speak at Salve Regina
Irin Carmon, a national reporter for MSNBC and one of New York Magazine’s Faces of Young Feminism, will discuss the Internet and the development of global feminism at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 8 in the Bazarsky Lecture Hall.
Free and open to the public, Carmon’s lecture is sponsored by the Mosaic student newspaper.
“It is an honor to have Irin Carmon come to Salve and speak on such an important and relevant topic,” said Kristin Wilinkiewicz, Mosaic’s co-editor-in-chief. “With the recent dialogue that is being had across campus and nationally about women’s rights and diversity, we hope to spark that flame within the student body as well.”
Carmon has received multiple awards recognizing her work focusing on women, culture and politics. She was named one of Forbes magazine’s “30 under 30” in media and recently co-authored “Notorious R.B.G.: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg” with Shana Knizhnik. The book climbed to No. 2 on the New York Times bestseller list.
A Harvard University graduate, Carmon previously wrote for Salon.com and Jezebel.com. She was also published regularly in the Boston Globe, the Village Voice and the Anniston Star.
