I want to let you know about an exciting program being sponsored by the ALA/SRRT/Feminist Task Force that is not in the preliminary ALA 2007 Annual Conference Program.
We have had the good fortune to have Ellie Smeal request to be a part of the ALA Conference this year. Below is the description that will be in the final ALA 2007 Conference Program. There will also be a reception before the program. More details coming later.
Ms. Magazine: A Voice for a Movement
Sunday, June 24, 2007
8:00 - 10:00 p.m.
The Feminist task Force invites you to join Ms. Publisher, Eleanor Smeal, for a discussion of the premier feminist publication that, for 30 years, has been the voice for a movement. Learn about the new Committee of Scholars, which is diverse in race, ethnicity, age, region, and academic discipline, and how the Committee works with Ms. to increase the reach of women's studies scholarship to a wider audience. With this partnership, Ms. serves as the perfect vehicle to give feminist scholars and activists the voice that they deserve and to give Ms. readers the information that they need.
