Nona Willis Aronowitz      

Author, "GIRLdrive"

Nona is an editor and writer for GOOD magazine and radio commentator with a fresh, nuanced take on feminism, youth culture, and the media. She has written for The Nation, The Village Voice, Salon, Slate, Bitch magazine, and the New York Observer. She is co-author of "Girldrive: Criss-crossing America, Redefining Feminism," and blogs at Girl-drive.com. "Girldrive" is based on a road trip that she and her photographer friend, Emma Bee Bernstein, took across the U.S., where they talked with hundreds of young women about their lives, ambitions, and views on feminism.

Nona’s speeches include “Girldrive: Feminism and Activism for Gen Y,” which takes a fun, visual, multimedia approach to discussing feminism, young women, and the issues and activism that are important to them; and “Beyond Cosmo and Maxim: Sexism, Media and Feminist Consciousness,” which positions mainstream media both as a feminist gateway or “click moment” for young women—and as an essential tool for combating restrictive gender roles and dangerous stereotypes.

University of Maine Professor Sarah Hentges raves: "Your talk was truly amazing and sparked some great discussion. It meant a lot to my students to be able to talk honestly about the many ways one can be a feminist."
