Speakers and workshops for the festival range from self-defense demonstrations to feminist arts, poetry, and film They also address activism in education, sexual violence, abortion rights, women's health, sexual orientation, and women's labor, including academics' lawsuits against sex discrimination. Presenters of note are Dolores Huerta of the farmworkers movement, Lilia Melani of the CUNY Women's Coalition lawsuit against sex discrimination, and Pat Lander, a long time co-coordinator of the Women's Studies Program at Brooklyn College.
