Activist and author Amber Tamblyn and Lauren Schiller in San Francisco

Hear how Amber Tamblyn presaged the #MeToo Movement with an OpEd about believing women;

how she went from actress to activist and advocate for women's rights--and defined her own role in the feminist movement--and you'll hear how we can all play a role in leading change. Amber wrote a book about her evolution, called "Era of Ignition: Coming of Age in a Time of Rage and Revolution". It's part memoir, part manifesto, part call to action.
