Alison's updates from the NWSA

Okay, I've had a great time at Day 1 of NWSA 2011.  Here are some things I've learned:

  • The US has 5% of the world's population, and 25% of the world's prisoners (this info from fascinating Ruth Gilmore, who is someone my Gender and Violence students will be hearing about).
  • Women's and Gender Studies is the ideal liberal arts degree (thanks, Astrid!).
  • If you Google "hysterectomy and NWSA," a Baxter Sez post from 2007 is the fifth item on the list (Karlyn gets credit for discovering this, and she'll write a book about it if I gnaw out my own uterus).
And here are some of my NWSA friends hanging out before tonight's keynote lecture.
