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).
