Remember the MAC membership meeting is Thurs. Aug. 6, 6:45 - 8:15 in Berkeley R, session # 186.  Please plan to come and bring a friend/ally!  Please prioritize MAC versus other meetings scheduled at that time at which you are not an officer or presenting.  

Luckily CSW is in the following time slot so all we feminist women and men in MAC can make both.

Please party/network before or after the meeting.  Please be there.  

I have been without a university computer or any email access for months so that is why messages may have been returned to you.  Still working on resolving the problems.

Also see the info about a MAC/CSW co-sponsored panel below and please come if you can. 
Wednesday, August 5, from 11:45 a.m.-1:15 p.m.
Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication
2009 Convention   *    Boston, Massachusetts   *   August 5-8 
The Status of Women and the Media Beauty Myth 

Co-sponsors: Minorities And Communication Division and the Commission on the Status of Women 
	In the media women, more than men, are regularly held to invalid, non work-related standards of so-called beauty that are an extension of racism, sexism, classism and ageism.  This panel explores how the media are teaching the public to hate and fear the queen-sized.
