WAM! NYC Conference This Saturday

Women, Action, and the Media—WAM!—will hold its NYC conference this weekend, 23 March, at the Hive at 55. The conference is for those in media—feminist journalists and/or media activists—would want to learn more tools, strategies, and ideas to improve their work. It is, clearly, also a great networking event.
