And so do I.
I just got an email from the Dude with that subject line, about an event next Monday that is full of awesome. If you’re in the NYC metro area, heads up!
1. It’s taking place at the Bookstore/Cafe of Housing Works, which is a great charity that focuses on helping the homeless and those suffering with HIV/AIDS, and is a great place to while away an afternoon.
2. It’s called “That Not So Fresh Feeling: Marketing Embarrassing Products to Women.” Who doesn’t love dragging things that are supposed to be shameful and icky out into the light, where we can see they are really neither icky or shameful, and have a good laugh into the bargain?
And oh, there shall be laughs:
3. It features the author of the new cultural history of menstruation called Flow, Susan Kim, Hanna Rosin, co-editor of Slate’s lady-blog DoubleX, and Harpy favorite Sarah Haskins, whose Target: Women series (RIP) is some of the best feminist culture-jamming out there.
4. It’s FREE, bitches! (Although it would be very cool to make a donation to HW.)
You can get all the deets (not that there are many more) here. Who’s in?
