    Are you mad as hell at the Supreme Court ripping away women's rights, worried about what they will do next, and feeling powerless? Well, we are, and we want to learn from women who have done something. Women’s Media Group is pleased to invite you to a Master Class with some powerful and purposeful media changemakers who will share their stories, vision, and how they made it happen.


    Bridget Todd is a frequently cited expert, trainer, and speaker on combating disinformation and extremism online, advocating for social media platform accountability, creating safer digital experiences for women and other marginalized people, and celebrating and amplifying marginalized people’s contributions to tech and the internet. She created her critically acclaimed podcast, There Are No Girls on the Internet, to explore how marginalized people show up online in response to the lack of inclusion in conversations around the internet. 

    Her podcast earned “Best Technology Podcast” at the iHeart Radio Podcast Awards and a Shorty Award for “Best Podcast Miniseries” for DISINFORMED, a miniseries exploring how misinformation and conspiracy theories around COVID, gender, and race hurt marginalized communities. As Director of Communication for the national gender-justice advocacy organization Ultraviolet, Bridget regularly meets with leadership from social media platforms to advocate for and develop policy recommendations to make digital experiences safer and more inclusive. Bridget’s writing and work on technology, race, gender, and culture have been featured in the Atlantic, Newsweek, the Nation, the Daily Show, and several other outlets.


    Sara Berliner is a creator, producer, and social entrepreneur who bridges creative development, product strategy, brand-building, and business development. Sara is an advisor at Hellosaurus, the groundbreaking interactive video platform for kids, where she was on the founding team and created the award-winning original series, The Birthday Show. Sara’s career has threaded digital formats alongside puppet theater, documentary film, the music business, book publishing, animation, consumer products, and live events. 

    At Star Farm, the children’s media company she co-founded, Sara created properties like Edgar & Ellen, with two seasons on Nicktoons, twelve books with Simon & Schuster, and a host of licensed products. In 2008, Sara founded the Kids & Family group at ScrollMotion, launching first-ever apps for IP’s like Harry Potter and Batman, then spent five years as Chief Strategy Officer of Night & Day Studios, home of worldwide bestselling app Peekaboo Barn. Sara has told stories with collaborators like Sesame Street, Warner Bros., Disney, DreamWorks, Mattel, Scholastic, the NFL, National Geographic, Highlights for Children, and Wow in the World. Sara develops IP and consults for clients like Tom Colicchio’s nonprofit, A Place at the Table, and speaks regularly at conferences like Harvard University’s Folklore & Mythology Symposium. As the founder of Vote Like a Mother, Sara put her brand-building skills to work raising awareness, money, and volunteers for important causes and nonprofits, creating a thousands-strong community of engaged citizens driven by empathy and a fierce desire to improve the world for future generations.

    Arielle Nissenblatt is the founder of EarBuds Podcast Collective, a weekly podcast newsletter and podcast. She is the Community Manager at SquadCast.fm, a remote recording platform. She is a graduate of the Salt Institute of Audio Documentary Studies.

She is one of the founders of Podcast Taxonomy, an international effort to categorize roles and credits in the podcast industry. She is the cohost of Sounds Profitable, Adtech Applied, a show about adtech in the audio space. Nissenblatt listens to over 40 hours of audio content per week. 

    Vaishnavi Patel is a lawyer focusing on civil rights. She often writes about the intersection of Indian myth, feminism, and anti-colonialism. She is the author of the New York Times bestselling novel Kaikeyi. Vaishnavi was the co-creator of Authors for Abortion Access, which raised over $30,000 for abortion funds and clinics. Vaishnavi grew up in and around Chicago, and in her spare time, enjoys activities that are almost stereotypically Midwestern: knitting, ice skating, drinking hot chocolate, and making hotdish.
