The 2009 NWSA annual conference, "Difficult Dialogues" was a great success!  Over 1600 people attended and Angela Davis gave an outstanding keynote to a packed room.

See what Angela Davis had to say as she reflects on her career as an activist and a scholar, the history of women's studies, health care reform, and more.  Use the video in your teaching or catch up if you missed the 2009 conference. 

Check out what a few attendees told us about the conference:
  • The diversity of culture and age-in both audience members and speakers-was exciting, inspiring. NWSA is positioned to be an agent for change in our society.
    - Judy Johnston, Ryder University
  • This conference was one of the most inspiring experiences in my young academic/professional life.  I had a weekend-long glimpse of what I want to be doing for the rest of my life. Now, it sometimes keeps me up at night-filled with excitement-just knowing that there is a place for me. 
    - M. Shelly Conner, University of Illinois at Chicago
Save the date for next year's conference, November 11-14, 2010 in Denver, Colorado.
