Radfems Respond 2014

I will be a panelist this year at Radfems Respond in Portland OR on May 24th.  The event is open to the public and there will be presentations on prostitution as a violation of women's human rights and gender as an oppressive social construct.

We are hoping to engage in respectful and open dialogue.  As such, meaningful and relevant questions for panelists can be submitted to the website for the event.  You can find information about the schedule, registration, the panelists, etc here:  http://radfemsrespond.wordpress.com/

If you have any questions you would like to be answered by myself, Rachel Ivey, Dawn Schiller, or Kathleen Barry, submit them here:  http://radfemsrespond.wordpress.com/ask-the-panelists/

I repeat, this is NOT a women's-only event on Saturday the 24th.  Anyone is allowed to attend, but please do register/RSVP so we have an idea of the amount of people coming.

There WILL be a smaller radical feminist women's-only gathering the next day.  Email radfemsrespond@gmail.com to be put in contact with the organizers if you are interested in that part of the gathering.  Please be respectful of boundaries for the Sunday event, but Saturday is open to everyone, so if you feel as though you have a stake in feminism and you are itching to be involved in women-centric dialogue, please attend by all means!
