This year I am serious about attending the Women Action & The Media Conference hosted by the Center for New Words. The conference will be held March 27-29, 2009 at MIT in Cambridge, Mass. Supported by such organizations as Feministing, Bitch, Free Press, Women Make Movies and more, the conference features guest speakers, workshops and networking opportunities galore. I'm looking forward to presentations on climate change, blogging, jobs in the new media, grassroots feminism -- well, all of them. I think it's an excellent opportunity to share ideas and bring together social justice movements (yes, vegetarianism is feminism and environmentalism!).
Regardless of gender, everyone is welcome. So feminist, journalist, media-watcher, activist... you get the idea. Hope to see you there!
