Bitch: A Feminist Response to Pop Culture - - TRAVEL -

SO­RAYA MEM­BRENO di­rec­tor of com­mu­nity What’s your one es­sen­tial “get through the air­port in one piece” ac­ces­sory?

I love eat­ing at air­ports, so I al­ways get there early and leave some time to wan­der around in search of the per­fect por­ta­ble junk food.

What’s your fa­vorite thing about stay­ing at ho­tels?

Eat­ing in bed while blast­ing ca­ble. I don’t have a tv at home, and I never ever eat in my own bed be­cause crumbs, so that com­bi­na­tion al­ways feels ex­tra in­dul­gent. Most re­quested talk: “These Are the Things No One Tells You: On Nav­i­gat­ing Pre­dom­i­nantly White In­sti­tu­tions and What Comes Af­ter.” It’s about let­ting first-gen­er­a­tion and work­ing-class stu­dents know that they’re not be­ing overly sen­si­tive or mak­ing this shit up. It’s real and it’s ubiq­ui­tous, but we can de­velop ways to sup­port one an­other in go­ing through it.

ANDI ZEISLER co­founder Do you have a fa­vorite place that giv­ing talks has taken you to? St. Peters­burg, Rus­sia. What’s your one es­sen­tial “get through the air­port in one piece” ac­ces­sory?

I’m not go­ing to lie: It’s weed gum­mies and my ipod. Both air­ports and fly­ing it­self make me re­ally anx­ious, so I try to fall asleep as fast as pos­si­ble.

Most re­quested talk:

“From Riot Gr­rrl to Mar­ket­place Fem­i­nism: Sell­ing—and Sell­ing Out—fem­i­nism.” It’s about the his­tory of how fem­i­nist ac­tivism has been made palat­able by con­sumer cul­ture and sold back to us as “em­pow­er­ment.”

KATE LESNIAK pub­lisher Do you have a fa­vorite place that giv­ing talks has taken you to?

Van­cou­ver, BC. Such a beau­ti­ful city, and very few ac­ci­den­tal run-ins with Trump vot­ers.

What’s your one es­sen­tial “get through the air­port in one piece” ac­ces­sory?

Never take my head­phones off even if my phone is 100 per­cent dead and al­ways have an ex­tra snack in my bag. Most Re­quested Talk: “Face­book Doesn’t Care About You Like Your Mem­bers Do: Sus­tain­able Rev­enue Models for a So­cial Land­slide.” It’s time for me­dia to get out of Face­book’s pocket and cre­ate en­gage­ment on our own terms, with­out an al­go­rithm look­ing over our shoul­ders!

JOSHUNDA SAN­DERS con­trib­u­tor What’s your one es­sen­tial “get through the air­port in one piece” ac­ces­sory?

I al­ways have to re­mem­ber to take my braids out of their pony­tail. For some rea­son the lit­tle X-ray machine thinks I am hid­ing dan­ger­ous things in it, so I al­ways get pat­ted down around my hair.

What’s your fa­vorite thing about stay­ing at ho­tels?

I have a fetish for col­lect­ing free, deca­dent mini-lo­tion and soap, ap­par­ently? So, that’s a cool thing.

Most re­quested talk:

“The Per­sonal Is Po­lit­i­cal: Find­ing the So­cial Change Nar­ra­tive Within.” This talk is all about tap­ping into your per­sonal nar­ra­tive and find­ing the in­ter­sec­tions with Amer­i­can pol­i­tics in or­der to change the world.
