PerSISTERS, ReSISTERS: Fightin' Words from California Women

Since women are still underrepresented in many fields, even writing (as VIDA reminds us), we must continue to persist, resist, and support one another as we each practice our own fighting style. We fight by being sexual; by being nasty women!; by naming our oppressors or naming our achievements; by choosing and protecting our own love, work, art, and voice. In this multi-genre reading, the members of the Fresno Women's Reading Series and Poets & Writers join forces in using words to do all of these things, and more.

Readers:
Angela M. Corbett
Jamie Asaye FitzGerald
Monique Quitana
Brandi M. Spaethe
