Women Action Media Conference this weekend

News & Politics

In New England this weekend and looking for ways to promote women in the media? I thought you might be. A number of AlterNet staffers, including myself, are heading to Boston for the annual Women, Action and the Media 2006 conference sponsored by the Center for New Words. This year's theme is "Making Noise, Making Change," and there's some fantastic panels and keynotes lined up. I'll be speaking on two panels: "Building a Better Noise Machine II," assembled by the brilliant women of In These Times, which will cover progressive media and framing issues with relationship to women; and I'll be on "Beyond Security Moms: Getting Women Heard in Midterm Election Coverage," with my focus being on digital media.

It's a great opportunity to meet and dissect some of the more pressing issues concerning women and media; registration at the door is a bit pricey now, but they do state that they offer assistance for limited-income folks who want to attend, and there's student and senior discounts. We'll see you there!
