Seattle's FemCon event is a feminist youth conference that aims to empower young attendees. The event will be taking place in Madison Park's MLK FAME Community Center and will feature a variety of workshops and presentations by speakers discussing enlightening topics. These topics will include talks about equal rights and domestic violence among other issues facing young women today.

Featuring empowering talks by speakers like Nan Stoops of the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Northwest Network's Fatima Arain, FemCon is promoted to a demographic of high schoolers and hopes to educate and empower today's youth with its message.

This feminist youth conference is one of the many social initiatives resonating with the Gen Z members of today's society. The female-empowering event speaks to this generation's love of self expression and falls in line with their desire to support social issues that they are passionate about.
