Women, Action And The Media

WAM, for short. It's an annual conference about ways to get more progressive women's voices into the traditional media, and it took place last weekend. I was on the panel about feminist blogging with such stars of the feminist blogs as Jessica and Samhita from feministing.com. They have several posts on the conference, and I encourage you to read those. You can find the conference program here.

Great energy and lots of interesting people. Wonderful people! That's part of what I got from participating. Also the usual jitters that follow an introvert in any meeting with many people. The rest of what I learned will inform my posts for some time.

But one thing I know already: We must push harder to get our message across.
