la leche rage

so next week is the LLLI big conference in DC. im not going but there was going to be this "in conjunction with" satelite workshop about gender issues and breast feeding. probably the most feminist workshop that whole week and i really wanted to go so i could use that information for the workshop i want to put together for next years NCOR. and it was by the WABA (World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action) which deals with international (non-white) issues in breastfeeding. i signed up a week or so after the deadline hoping there was still a place left. apparently not even 12 women signed up for it so they cut it from 2 workshops after 5:30 to just one morning orientation. im pissed that im going to have to miss work - thank goodness for comptime, but also that of the (i assume) 100s of women going to this conference only a handful apparently care about gender and non-white, upper-middle class, heterosexual issues.
