About our featured speaker:
Carrah Quigley is a spiritual humanist, National speaker and emerging thought leader. She has studied the world’s religions for 19 years and has BA in religious studies from University of Arizona. Originally from Tucson, Arizona, she traveled the world beginning at age 9 and built a special relationship with Ireland, where she received an MPhil in ecumenics, with distinction, from Trinity College Dublin. She lectures nationally on a wide range of topics from religion and spirituality to American culture, feminism, storytelling, earth-centered living and the future of Humanism. She is honored to speak at the Parliament of World Religions in Toronto in November 2018.

What is the relationship between beauty and power? The more a woman claims her own autonomy and develops her sense of self away from notions of marriage, home and family, the more her sense of her own beauty become a part of her empowerment rather than a superficial decoration or distraction. History has shown this. Conversations in kitchens and bathrooms have proven this. The Powder Room is an innocent name for the many revolutions it spawned. Hairspray and lipstick have taken on a more significant meaning in the third wave of feminism. This talk is about the new glow, this deep “Bronzing Age” of female empowerment, in the beauty department. Cosmetics and conversation might just change the world. Pucker up.

Recorded at Kansas City Oasis on July 22, 2018.
