1) Had a lovely evening on the Women’s Studies panel with fellow Hope College graduates Janet Swim (’83), Anne Lucas (’96), and Susan Kioko (’09). It was humbling to hear how other people have gone on to make use of their feminist coursework in fields as diverse as environmentalism, legal aid, and nursing. They filmed the discussion and I’m hoping it will be available online at some point. You’ll see it linked here if it is! I was impressed by the quality of questions from the audience, and the thoughtfulness of all the panelists’ answers.
2) While we’re on the subject … if you haven’t already signed Bridget McCarthy’s petition to the Board of Trustees regarding Hope’s institutional statement on human sexuality, stop on by Change.org and add your voice to the multitude!
3) In a post-presentation haze this morning, everything felt a bit flat — but biscuits, lemon curd and onion relish from The Biscuit restaurant helped! Also pledging to support Miriam’s Radical Doula Guide project at IndieGoGo.
4) Now time for a nap before going out to Grandma’s to watch Desk Set this evening.
