Live from Netroots Nation 2012: All the Feminism That’s Fit To Stream

Progressive online journalists and politicians will gather this weekend in Providence, R.I., for the seventh annual Netroots Nation conference. With sessions on blogging, social networking and strategizing, Netroots is the politics geek’s equivalent of Comic-Con—minus the crazy costumes. Leftist luminaries are always in attendance; among this year’s main attractions are Paul Krugman, Elizabeth Warren and Van Jones.

A number of talented feminist journalists and activists will be presenting at the conference, including Zerlina Maxwell, Anna Holmes and Jos Truitt. Courtesy of FreeSpeechTV, some of those sessions are streaming online. Ms. has picked five feminist panels you won’t want to miss–and we’ve made it easy for you to follow along at home by providing you with the schedule and livestreaming windows, below. All you have to do is come here at the right time and press play!
