Why Joss Matters


Are you looking for an engaging and fun speaker for Women's History Month or anytime?

In 2010, I spoke at the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women about feminism in a multicultural society. This wonderful panel included Courtney Martin and Siobhan Brooks. We discussed why some young women don't embrace the f-word, why some women of color don't embrace the f-word, what things "The Feminist Movement" needs to do to attract more women of color and much more.

Other topics I can speak on include:
  • Motherhood & feminism
  • Girls/Women in science & engineering
  • Social Media & feminism/activism
  • ASK! I'm confident we can work out a topic to fit your event / class
I can speak to audiences from kindergarten on up to life-long learners!

From reading to kindergartners about women's history to sharing my thoughts about activism & feminism online, I can style my talk, speech or remarks to your audience.

Featured speaker, panel participant or event emcee, you can count on me. 

I don't have to be the center of attention either! I'm a fun and smart emcee/event host. I'm mean with the timer, so I won't let your speakers go over their allotted time and at the same time keep everyone on a panel engaged.
