Greetings from Jerusalem!

I’m writing you from the trip of a lifetime! I’m in Israel and Palestine on a delegation organized by the Nobel Women’s Initiative, and led by Nobel Peace Laureate Jody Williams. (It was also meant to be led by Laureate Mairead Maguire as well, but she’s been detained by the Israeli government.)

Our mission here is to meet with women activists for peace and justice on all sides of the conflict. We start today with a full day of orientation and briefings, and then head straight to Ramallah tomorrow. I’ll be reporting back via facebook and twitter, posts on NWI’s blog, and a travel diary to be published in installments at Feministing. We’re also hoping to liveblog a few of our meetings – stay tuned!

You can read my thoughts on being selected for this incredible mission here.

Got questions?

My new column at Amplify will answer them! Or, y’know, some of them, at least.

Seriously, I’m so excited to be re-booting my column at Amplify Your Voice, and one of the changes I’m most excited about is the chance to answer reader questions. Read about the revamp here. And as for those questions, you know you’ve got ’em, so send ’em on

Get me out of here!

By which I mean: I love going on the road and talking with you in person about promoting healthy sexuality and reducing sexual violence. And I’m now working on my travel schedule for the Fall (though it’s also not too soon to talk Spring!). Want to bring me to your campus, conference or community? Click here for ideas, and please get in touch!

New interview on RealityCast

I caught up with Amanda Marcotte of RHRealityCheck‘s RealityCast to set the record straight about SlutGate, who really hates men, and the importance of recognizing the framework you’re living in. Check it (and the rest of her great show) out here.
