WORKSHOP + BOOK SIGNING | $5 SUGGESTED DONATION | ALL AGES | In an online world increasingly filled with harassment and trolling, women mostly bear the brunt of hostile sexual messages. Over half of young women say they've been sent explicit images that they didn’t ask for, according to Pew. After one too many of these hostile encounters, Alexandra Tweten created the viral Instagram account @ByeFelipe, which calls out men who turn hostile when rejected or ignored. Taking examples from her new book, Bye Felipe: Disses, Dick Pics, and Other Delights of Modern Dating, Alexandra will lead a workshop on the best online dating safety tactics, followed by Q&A and book signings.
Alexandra Tweten is the creator of the viral Instagram account @ByeFelipe. The Atlantic has referred to her as a "Feminist-Tinder-Creep-Busting Web Vigilante." She has been featured in national media outlets including The New York Times, Huffington Post, The Guardian, and Cosmopolitan, and has appeared on Good Morning America and Nightline. Tweten co-hosts the V Single Podcast on iTunes and has been a guest speaker at universities, the L.A. Museum of Broken Relationships, and the Sexting Art Festival in NY.
