Jamia Wilson is many things: An activist. A feminist. A storyteller. A mediamaker. But more than anything, she is a natural-born thought leader. As Executive Director of Women, Action, & the Media, the former YTH Executive Director, TED Prize Storyteller, and former Vice President of Programs at The Women's Media Center, Jamia has been a powerful force in the social justice movement for nearly a decade. As a leading voice on feminist and women's rights issues, her work and words have appeared in and on several outlets such as New York Magazine, The Today Show, and The Washington Post. She's also a staff writer for Rookie and has contributed to several books such as Madonna and Me: Women Writers on the Queen of Pop, and I Still Believe Anita Hill. But what we're most excited about is her own book that she's currently writing about Beyonce and feminism. (Yes, really.) It's no surprise she was named in Refinery29's 17 Faces of the Future of Feminism. "It may be true that Jamia has spoken alongside feminist greats like Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda, but we think they're also lucky to have been alongside her. A true next generation leader, she has graced the stage at events such as TED Women, Netroots Nation, and Facing Race, and travels across the U.S. and beyond to college campuses to talk about race, feminism, spirituality, leadership, and so much more." - Fresh Speakers
