Marquette Warrior: Feminist Discussion of Women in Politics Tonight

Feminist Discussion of Women in Politics Tonight

It has not been well publicized, but (although we are likely to disagree with a lot that is said) this looks to be an interesting discussion:
Women and Politics Panel!

Where: AMU 157

When: Wednesday, March 26, 7:00-8:00 p.m.

Come hear JoAnne Anton, Janet Boles, and Lauren Demshar discuss women in politics from a variety of perspectives and join in the talk-back session!
Note that Lauren Demshar has been substituted for Jackie Boynton, who had to cancel.

Expect the program to start with a Powerpoint discussion of the supposed “double-standard that women in power face.” Then Boles and Anton will speak very briefly (five to eight minutes), followed by discussion. The entire program is intended to go on for an hour or so.

We are tied up tonight, or we would be inclined to go and throw a stink bomb into the proceedings by asking a critical question or two, as we did in an earlier discussion of rape.

Maybe somebody else will do that, but regardless, it’s doubtless going to be interesting for anybody interested in Wisconsin politics.


JoAnne Anton, and not Jackie Boynton, had to cancel. We regret the error.
