Politics of Fashion: An American Daughters Panel

Join us on International Women’s Day (Friday, March 8th) for our highly anticipated second panel event, Politics of Fashion

Spaces are limited.

Grab a ticket below. 


We have a diverse panel, including a stylist, fashion designer, and other brilliant ladies with unique perspectives on fashion, to answer your burning questions and discuss the effect fashion has on our everyday lives as well as the intersection of fashion with the issues of today (fast fashion, accessibility, LGBTQ+, racism, sexual violence, and more).

The floor will then be opened up to attendees (that’s you!) to share their stories and learn from each other.  

The ticket price includes light food and drink. There will also be a reception after the event to give everyone the opportunity to meet like-minded women (and men!) in Kansas City!

All ticket sales will go toward the American Daughters Summer Academy, a program aimed at supporting high school-aged women as they develop a vision for their future.

The Politics of Hair Panel

The Politics of Hair Panel

Join American Daughters for a conversation about women's hair.

Spaces are limited so make sure to grab a ticket here. 

While the politics of women's hair is not an issue that affects women equally, it is an issue that all women will likely face at some time. No matter a women's age, race, religion, or sexual orientation, she will feel pressure at some point to adopt hairstyles that are considered "good hair" by the dominant culture.

We have gathered panelists with varying hair stories to share their experience. Then, the floor will be opened up the floor to attendees (that's you!) to share their experience and learn from one another. 

We hope you can join us!
