Felicity Hill on WILPF, the CSW, and the need for hope, humor, and horror

Felicity Hill, former WILPF UN Office Director spoke recently in NYC during the Commission on the Status of Women. I particularly agree with her recommendation that we keep hope, humor, and horror in mind when developing strategies for changing the world.

She also mentions a book written by WILPFers called Listen to Women for a Change, which is available on the PeaceWomen website as a PDF.

PJ Crowley forced to resign from State

For the crime of pointing out that the DoD's treatment of Bradley Manning "is ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid," PJ Crowley was forced to resign his post as State Department spokesman.

From the story, sounds like the administration had already been pushing him out the door by making White House aide Mike Hammer his deputy. Hammer was conveniently available to immediately replace Crowley.

Full story by Ed Henry on CNN's Political Ticker.
