On October 23rd, Jill Soloway, creator of Transparent, made their explosive appearance on Town Hall’s stage to celebrate the release of their new book She Wants It: Desire Power and Toppling the Patriarchy. For an evening of raucous conversation and feminist debating, they were joined by special guests Hannah Gadsby, Morgan Parker, Nicole J. Georges, and Faith Soloway.
If you’d like to revisit the evening’s discussion, or if you weren’t able to make it to the event, take a look at the photos below, taken by Libby Lewis.
The evening begins with a bustling crowd as friends exchange excited greetings and fill the hall in preparation for Jill and company. (Town Hall’s own Edward Wolcher is excited too!)
Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby brings the house down with an opening comedy routine.
An interlude from musical guest Faith Soloway, who plays a tune to welcome Jill to the stage.
Jill talks with Morgan Parker in preparation for her conversation with Nicole J. Georges and their session of feminist debating—a social sport of Jill’s own design.
Nicole takes the stage with Morgan, and the crowd listens with rapt attention.
After the show, the crowd arrives for book signings and a chance to meet these powerhouse speakers in person. Audience members show off their Soloway swag, and the speakers pose together.
Soloway fans gather for drinks and conversation at a post-event reception. So many were ecstatic to meet Jill and get their books signed!
