progressive women digressing

Whew! So last night’s panel was epic in length: Frankus clocked it at 2 1/2 hours. It’s almost like people had a LOT to say…many thanks to Gayle Romasanta for organizing, to Bindlestiff for hosting, and to guests who came to listen to us!


You can’t see Golda Supernova (or her two super-cute kids) in this pic, but L to R, it’s Rhoda Gravador, Jeannie Barroga, Marianne Villanueva, Eliza “Neneng” Barrios, Reanne “Immaculata” Estrada, and Jenifer “Baby” Wofford.

The three of us haven’t been in matching outfits since last May’s lecture at Stanford: I really┬ámiss having more time to clown around with Reanne and Eliza. We’re able to get together every couple of months, but what with me in grad school, Eliza fleeing the country, and Reanne down there, it’s been challenging to start another M.O.B. project. Soon, though…soon.

In any case, last night was lively, grouchy, hilarious, and of course, deeply moving and inspiring. I’m sure that we’ve inspired the masses to rise up. Our lies were that good!

Here’s another photo of the O.G.s, post-panelizing:
