Ever wish you could meet Cyndi Lauper — or Tegan and Sara or Margaret Cho? Or ask Katha Pollitt or Kate Harding or Rebecca Traister to edit your manuscript? Or wear the iconic blazer Princeton Professor Melissa Harris Lacewell appears in on “The Rachel Maddow Show”?
You’ll have your chance today — but only today — to make these and other dreams come true.
Head on over to the Women, Action & Media auction, where you’ll find 53 amazing items, including:
* dinner with Jessica Valenti
* autographed guitars from Ani DiFranco, Aimee Mann, Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin
* an original DTWOF comic strip by Alison Bechdel
* a customized recipe by Lisa Jervis
* lunch with Baratunde Thurston and a tour of the offices of “The Onion”
* Sarah Haskins records your outgoing voicemail message
* signed books and posters by the likes of bell hooks, Marjane Satrapi, Jane Hamilton, Suzan-Lori Parks, Jennifer Weiner and Venus and Serena Williams
* much, much more
WAM! — the annual conference turned national organization that is fighting for gender justice in media — is raising for money for its launch as a national organization, with WAM! chapters in all 50 states and beyond.
It’s a great cause — and you can do your holiday shopping. Seriously, there are great deals to be had. And no one else will give (or get) the same gift!
Bidding ends at 9 p.m. EST. Good luck!
