The woman in the ad is gorgeous–I’m afraid that the real women on the panel will be disappointments! (But maybe the roller chick will be at the event, too–who knows?)

And they actually used a Sistah’s picture in the advertisement! Now that’s truly Feminist!

Good for you Historiann and I have deep confidence that you’re gonna,( to quote

People can engage in feminist blogging in whatever subject/s that interest them. What I’d like to talk about is the way in which motherhood functions in blogs and other online conversations–and how eager many are to use it as a bludgeon against other women & other mothers.

I guess the bloggers who focus on motherhood as their defining feature are gonna get an earful from you.

It sort of connotes nurturing something, nudging it along in a refined way, supplying the verbal version of what would be liner notes on a classical album or shrewd program annotations at a recital. No one will be expecting you to pull an ornate hickory shepherd’s crook from under the table to tug the microphone from in front of a participant who is busting the time-budget. But that should not be totally off the docket, as it would keep a little edge on things. Coming a mere week after the roller derby session, imagine how one might “curate” a move to cut off the jam if the Bay Area Bombers were in town, or if the Assault City club skated in from Syracuse!

This is sounding better all the time. I’m not a “local,” but if an offloaded dreamliner ticket came up on e-Bay, I might just point my browser for Denver Int’l.

I read that too quickly and pictured you “curing” the panel as one might a ham.”

I don’t know exactly–you’ve given me a fantastic image in my mind of rubbing people’s legs down with salt and sugar, and blowing smoke on them. Mmmmmmmmnnnnnn. . . hammmmm.

I think the choice of the verb “to curate” has to do with the setting at the MCA, and the fact that Feminism & Co. is a project of an art proffie (Elissa Auther) and an English proffie (Gillian Silverman). That, and the preponderance of feminists from the art world on the panel. I’ve been asked to give an introduction, raise some issues, and to guide the conversation with the bloggers and the audience.
