Occupy Wall Street may be a directly democratic and leaderless movement, but that doesn’t mean it lacks structure—or that it isn’t preoccupied by questions of representation. In this week’s installment of Nation Conversations, web editor Emily Douglas and reporter Sarah Seltzer discuss the role of women in Zuccotti Park, and the complex issues of minority participation that female activists have encountered. You can read Seltzer’s recent article about the women of Occupy Wall Street here.
