The Ask A Feminist Conversation Booth: What the eff is it, and how the eff do I get in on it?

The feminist is IN!  Remember Lucy in the Peanuts?  Same basic concept, only we're a lot nicer than Lucy was, and we don't charge a quarter.

We will be setting up the Ask A Feminist booth outside various event locations (and maybe even some other locations...more on that later) as a way of inviting people from the larger Milwaukee community to meet Real, Live Feminists of all kinds.  Our goal in this is to engage in real and positive conversations with many different people, both those that are already engaged in feminist dialogue, and those that may be unfamiliar to progressive ideas about gender. 

We're doing this because we believe that a lot of confusion and antipathy towards feminists and feminism is caused by a lack of knowledge about what feminism is and the myriad meanings it can have to those of us who identify as feminists.  Our goal is not to attack or to argue, but to create friendly, respectful discussions.

If you're interested in settin' in the booth for an hour or two, please sign up on our volunteer form, and indicate that you'd like to work at the Ask a Feminist booth.
