The MRAs vs. Rad Fem 2013

Rad Fem 2013 is a radical feminist conference set to happen in London, on June 8th and 9th of this year at the London Irish Centre.

I spoke with Nic Nesbitt, one of the organizers of Rad Fem 2013, about the importance of radical feminism, what's planned for the conference, and the efforts of MRA groups to shut down their event.
