I'm likely to be AFK until Friday (Thursday at the very least), so I have to ask you a favour.


But first, to wrap up Women's History Month in a bunchy clump, here's the last six profiles:

If you Google for Emma Brunskill's latest work, you'll see she's been involved in ambulatory robot studies. Very technical page, though.

Laurie Anderson
Laurie Anderson

On September 16, 2005, Laurie’s exhibition The Waters Reglitterized opened at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York City. According to the press release by Sean Kelly, The Waters Reglitterized is a diary of dreams and their literal recreation as works of art. This work, created in the process of re-experiencing or re-working her dreams while awake, uses the language of dreams to investigate the dream itself. The resulting pieces include drawings, prints and high definition video. The installation ran until October 22, 2005. In 2006, she contributed a song to Plague Songs, a collection of songs related to the 10 Biblical plagues.

Laurie Anderson narrated Ric Burns's Andy Warhol: The Documentary Film, which was first televised in September 2006 as part of the PBS American Masters series. Anderson also performed in Came So Far For Beauty, the Leonard Cohen tribute event held in The Point Theatre, Dublin, Ireland on October 4 and 5, 2006.

Recently, through her web site, Laurie announced a re-release of her first album, Big Science, on Nonesuch Records, a DVD box set containing her short films and the concert movie Home of the Brave, a book of drawings titled Night Life, and a new album to be released in 2008, Homeland.Wikipedia

Here's the 'favour' part. I'm not going to have much access, if at all, because Myfanwy is ever-so-delightfully dragging me away from my various burdens (and puppies) for a day or two to visit lovely Gaithersburg, north of Washington, D.C. We'll drive back and visit the Poodle Breeder Previously Blogged About, too.

However, this means I won't be able to do my webcomics votingespecially since the turnover is on Sunday, when I'll be back, but Myfi with or without boychild, might still be visiting here.

Can you please take a few minutes (5, 10 if your pages load slowly), and indulge your buried urge to just click like crazy? (c.f. 'Oooo, ticky-box!') Especially on April 1 (no joke)? Top Web Comics and WebbedComics turn over at midnight Pacific (GMT-7, currently); BuzzComix is every 24 hours, from whenever you vote.

Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon

The marriage licenses granted on February 12 were voided on August 12 of that year.  Ms. Lyon said in response:

"Del is 83 years old and I am 79. After being together for more than 50 years, it is a terrible blow to have the rights and protections of marriage taken away from us. At our age, we do not have the luxury of time."

Antonia NovelloMarch 24:
Antonia Novello

Updates: In February 2006, she announced that she would not run for the United States Senate against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In 2006, Dr. Novello was a finalist for the Hispanic Business magazine Woman of the Year Award and was featured in the April 2006 issue.

Hillary Rodham ClintonMarch 22:
Hillary Rodham Clinton

Update: since this piece's original composition in 2004, Hillary was re-elected to her Senate seat in 2006; and on January 20, 2007, she announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee for the United States presidential election of 2008. footnote 6

Since her presidential campaign started, though... the usual slanging matches have begun.  *sigh*  Link to current coverage here.

Ack! Meant to do this before bed, and I got distracted. Sorry.

Judy ChicagoMarch 19:
Judy Chicago

(This was one of my favourites to do initially, in part because it took a good bit of effort to beat the table structure into a Mondrian-like background for such a fascinating artist without the text getting disjointed. And because I got to see The Dinner Party in Boston ages ago. *grin*)

Glenn Close starred as Col. Cammermeyer in the TV biopic Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story, winning the 'Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Special' Emmy; the movie received several other Emmys as well as numerous other awards.

According to this September 2006 interview, Cammermeyer had received a letter in 2006 asking her to return to active service despite her public exposure as a lesbian.

This profile ended up being surprisingly short. Or maybe it's just efficient?

For many readers, the highlight of the year will be Toni Morrison's novel Mercy (Random House, October), which looks at racism in three periods of American history: in the year 2000; colonial beginnings in 1660; and a "middle period" of legalised racism.

Gah. I've had an inappropriate possessive form posted for three years?!? *shudder* [corrects hastily]

From CabotWitchcraft.com

...The Witches Public Awareness League, as it will now be known as, began it's return, on Samhain 2006. We formally registered the League at Salem City Hall, and with the funds raised through our Spirit of Samhain celebration, we have begun this journey anew. We have been working behind the scenes for several months now, but with the Celtic New Year behind us and Mercury gone direct, it's time to move forward. As of this writing, there are already several volunteers who have dedicated themselves to this venture and donated their time and good energy to this cause. With this said, we would like to welcome the Cabot Academy of Witchcraft class, and wish them the best on their journey with Witchcraft III: As a Religion. We hope that each and everyone of you will help us and join us in creating and bringing back the WPAL to the status it was way back when. We are proud of what each of you have done with your class-work and your dedication to the Cabot Tradition....

Introducing New Charity V-Gifts

We're proud to announce a new program: charity V-Gifts. We'll be offering themed V-Gifts this year at various times to coincide with various occasions.

March is National Women's History Month in the US. To show your support, you can purchase the Rosie the Riveter V-Gift for yourself or for a friend.

All the proceeds (minus the annoying fees the credit card companies charge) will go to Women for Women International, a program to support women in unstable regions and provide them tools and services to allow them to transform their communities. Read more about the organization and our new charity V-Gift here.

Since this V-Gift is designed to be an easy way for you to make a donation, we've set the price at $1.99. Buy one for one of the strong, smart, fantastic women in your LJ life. (Or the guys, too!)

Heidi got me one of these! Thanks, Heidi!
