Our two volunteers have been selected, and we now have a full bylaws committee. In addition to our existing leadership, our new committee members are Kate Colligan (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Bethany Anderson (email@example.com). The committee will be evaluating our next steps in the coming weeks and will be soliciting input for by-laws from WCRT members, so watch the listserv and blog for that!

WCRT is looking for two volunteers to join the co-chairs and vice
co-chairs on a committee to develop by-laws for the roundtable. This
year, SAA has required all roundtables to have their own by-laws.
This is a great opportunity to become more involved in the roundtable
and have a say in our leadership! Our final draft of the by-laws will
be issued by next year's annual meeting, so the drafting process will
be going on over the course of this year. If you're interested or
have any questions, please email Elizabeth Novara (firstname.lastname@example.org) or
Alex Krensky (email@example.com).

Meredith Tax, writer and political activist since the late 1960s, has founded or co-founded a series of feminist and social justice organizations starting with Bread and Roses, an early socialist-feminist group in Boston. Her 1970 essay, "Woman and Her Mind: The Story of Everyday Life," is considered a foundational text of the U.S. women’s liberation movement. “Acting Across Borders” will focus on the main questions Tax explored in this essay and throughout her work as a feminist: race, class, and internationalism.
