Sanders, critics were quick to point out, is notably. not a woman.

Sander, who unsuccessfully ran agaisnt Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primaries in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, said he was 'honored to join the women'. "In January, millions of women came out in an extraordinary and unprecedented display of power and resistance", Sanders said about speaking at the Women's Convention."Now more than ever, we must support the leadership of women across the country and fight together to advance our progressive agenda". Officials with the organization wouldn't confirm if any of the Democratic women had been first invited as the opening-night speaker, as Sanders appears to have been.

Piper Perabo (actress and activist), Sally Kohn (Political Commentator and Community Organizer) and Lilianna Angel Reyes (Activist), Nomiki Konst (Investigative Reporter, The Young Turks), Leah Greenberg (Co-Executive Director, The Indivisible Project) also join the growing roster of speakers.
