What The Women Of South By SouthWest Are Up To

Austin’s annual music & film festival South by SouthWest hasn’t historically provided the most welcoming environment for women, but that’s beginning to change. Several panels this year focus on issues facing female journalists, and so far no startups have been reduced to hiring women to attend their parties yet. Here are a few of the things the women of SXSW are up to this year.

Making new friends:

Doing something every day that scares them:

Having it all:

Talking about ambition and opportunity:

Charting the future of porn:

Dressing practically:

Talking about ‘girliness’:

Hollering about exploitation:

Enjoying the short bathroom lines:
