#WISCFI summarized

So you’re looking for summaries of the Women in Secularism conference, because you, like me, weren’t able to go. Here you go: Skatje Myers, Jen McCreight, Ashley Miller, Skeptical Seeker, and Catherine Dunphy. I’m a little jealous.

Now what I expect to happen, though, is that this long list of speakers — Lauren Becker, Ophelia Benson, Jamila Bey, Greta Christina, R. Elisabeth Cornwell, Margaret Downey, Annie Laurie Gaylor, Debbie Goddard, Jennifer Michael Hecht, Melody Hensley, Sikivu Hutchinson, Susan Jacoby, Jennifer McCreight, Bernice Sandler, Wafa Sultan, and Rebecca Watson — will receive greater recognition, and at the next conferences I attend, more of them will be invited, and I’ll be hearing much more from them.

    PZ,

    I was also looking for a summary of the conference you did go to. My Dad was too cheap to attend the entire event and only told me about the public debate on the first night.

    Looking at that, I realized I have missed an important point. Please make that the Kamloops Person who moved away.

    I would really like to start going to these, especially ones in the Pacific Northwest (so many FtB bloggers are from here; I bet the speaker list would be ten kinds of awesome.)

    Is there a master list somewhere, or a Facebook group or a listserv somewhere that provides announcements?

    I could easily sit through a couple of hours of Susan Jacoby. Easily.
