For the second installment of our Hope & Fury Concert Series, the soulful pop band, Vita and the Woolf  transformed our Fishtown cafe into a music venue packed with people ready to make a difference in the world of gender equality.

Recording artist and activist, Lauren Hart, moderated the night’s panel where Jennifer Pague of Vita and the Woolf, Anne Wakabayashi of Emerge Pennsylvania, and Tiffany Nguyen of Women’s Media Center discussed women’s role in the media.

“Those in the higher up positions need to be more willing to apprentice younger people who are not just white men.” – Jennifer Pague

The cafe was filled with people enjoying complimentary salads from sweetgreen and beer from Yards BreweryAttendees also got a chance to contribute to the Hope & Fury Wall, writing one thing people were hopeful about, and one thing they were furious about.

Words such as “Clean Water,” “Sustainable Packaging,” “The Youth,” and “Community,” filled the hopeful side, while “Ignorance,” “Hate Crime,” “Gender Pay Gap,” and “Student Loans,” populated the furious side.

Next on the Hope & Fury line up, August 10, is GLBL VLLG, the only concert where the audience is the headliner.  Check back soon for more details!
