Liveblogging WAM - Strategies for Making Change session

I just want to say that I am incredibly proud right now to be facilitating a sesion — at this very moment — with Deanne Cuellar (WIMN’s Voices blogger, director of the Texas Media Empowerment Project and MAGNET: Media Action Grassroots Network), Anne Elizabeth Moore (WIMN’s Voices blogger, author of Unmarketable: Brandalism, Copyfighting, Mocketing and the Erosion of Integrity) and Betty Yu (Manhattan Neighborhood Network and MAGNET: Media Action Grassroots Network), all of whom are discussing the nitty gritty of how women are taking action to change media content, media production and media regulation/policy in the service of a pro-feminist, anti-racist social justice vision for better media for stronger communities and a stronger democracy.

I will report back in detail later, and hopefully be able to get copies of the video tape that is being recorded by a local media/documentary activist. But for now, can I just say how inspiring it is to have been able to assemble these women, who within just the last 60 minutes have talked about:

–women activists in the cable access community teaching media production and giving media tools and resources to Chinese immigrant garment workers and Latino immigrant construction workers in New York who have been able to make their own media to tell their real stories for the first time;

–women-led social justice groups in San Antonio, Texas who do community organizing around a variety of key race, class, gender and sexuality issues and who came together to protest the FCC’s media deregulation that has led to distinctly damaging media coverage that hurts their communities;

–bringing girls into zine-making and independent print art and storytelling projects as a way of helping them interrupt inaccurate, misrepresentative, sterotypic or otherwise marginalizing corporate media (and governmental) depictions of girls’ and women’s lives;

and more…

(There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
