Join Kansas NOW, Lawrence NOW and Amanda Marcotte for dessert, wine and panel discussion in Lawrence. "Seeing Red!! In Pursuit of Progressive Politics in a Red State": Panel will feature guests from LGBTQ, Women's Rights and Environmental Rights Communities. Marcotte rose to prominence in 2004 and 2005 as the first feminist blogger to gain traction and traffic in the larger political blogosphere. She continues to blog tirelessly at Pandagon, Slate’s Double X, and RH Reality Check. In 2008, Marcotte published her first book It’s A Jungle Out There: The Feminist Survival Guide to Politically Inhospitable Environments, a book for relieving the stress of dealing with sexism through laughter. Her second book Get Opinionated: A Progressive’s Guide to Finding Your Voice (and Taking a Little Action) came out in 2010. This is a free event, but contributions are encouraged and will go to support the work of Kansas NOW's pursuit of progressive ideals and equality in red state Kansas.
