Adrienne van der Valk
Host, Feminist Hotdog (she/her/hers)
Adrienne van der Valk thinks feminism needs an upgrade. She’s on a mission to show the world that expanding our feminist thinking is good for everyone and makes life more joyful. Adrienne started Feminist Hotdog because, as our society becomes increasingly fractured, she believes it’s more important than ever to draw strength from everyday feminism and feminist heroes. As a social worker turned writer, she’s fascinated by the resilience and creativity of people of all genders who experience sexism. And as a cis white woman, she’s committed to a version of feminism that centers the most marginalized people and liberates everyone. Adrienne lives in Jersey City, New Jersey, with her husband and a pit bull named Zola.
