Here’s some NOW conference commentary from Amanda Marcotte (a feminist blogger and presenter at the conference).
As you might guess, Amanda and I left with different impressions of the conference. For example, Amanda was sad to miss the Sex Toy Party hosted by Maryland’s Young Feminist Task Force. I was not.
Also, Jessica Valenti of Feministing.com thinks that Ani DiFranco’s poem was about pregnancy and the patriarchy (see my confusion over said poem here). Jessica appears to be a big Ani fan, so I’m happy to defer feminist poetry interpretation to her.
