The Girls and their Allies Caucus of the National Women's Studies
Association (NWSA) seeks panelists for a session on girls' issues, which we
are proposing for NWSA's 2006 meeting in Oakland, California.

We invite proposals for 15-minute presentations about a range of issues
relevant to girls' lived experiences, including (but not limited to)
developmental issues, education, social life, media use, identity
negotiation, family roles, and so on.

Please email proposals to hains_at_temple.edu by October 25, 2005. Proposals
must include the following information:

- Name
- Affiliation*
- Contact information (telephone, email, mailing address)

- A short abstract (300-500 words)

*Note that we welcome proposals from individuals affiliated with not only
universities, but also primary and secondary schools, community groups,
activist organizations, etc. We also welcome proposals from independent
scholars.

The 2005 conference will take place in Oakland, California (located in the
San Francisco Bay Area) from June 15-18 at Oakland Mariott City Center. More
