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 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.
