ThinkFest Snapshot: Kathleen Kane

Gay Marriage and Beyond: Pushing Pennsylvania Forward

We’re rounding up the reasons Philly Mag readers should not miss ThinkFest, our week-long event connecting the brightest minds and most innovative ideas in Philadelphia. 

Kathleen KanePennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane began her  career right here in Philly at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law.

Called Tom Corbett’s worst nightmare, Kane has a well-earned reputation for being a confident, won’t-back-down member of the state government. Her controversial decision not to defend Pennsylvania’s gay-marriage ban in court has led to threats of impeachment from none other than Daryl Metcalfe.


You can catch Kane's talk, "Gay Marriage and Beyond: Pushing Pennsylvania Forward," one of 17 idea-sparking sessions during ThinkFest's Main Event, on Saturday, November 9th, at The Kimmel Center.
