About the speaker

Courage. Bravery. Guts. Nerve. Valor. Daring. Audacity. Suzanne Benton speaks of the times she’s had it and why, how she’s called upon it, and what she thinks about it. She shares her thoughts on the idea that we all share the capacity for courage, and explores how we buoy each other.

Suzanne Benton is an American mask performing and visual artist, and the feminist activist who founded and organized the Women’s Solidarity March in St Pete, Florida. With the prodigious efforts of her team, she helped bring together 30,000 peaceful marchers on January 21, 2017. As a pioneer Second Wave Feminist committed to giving voice to women, she’s shared her many-faceted art in 31 countries East and West. Art feeds her activism, and activism feeds her art.
