1. The Senate Committee on Labor and Human relations has voted unanimously
to confirm Alexis Herman as U.S. Secretary of Labor. A full vote in the
Senate has been delayed. Use our Take Action Section at
http://www.feminist.org/action/1_action.html to contact your Senators today to
urge immediate confirmation of Alexis Herman, a uniquely qualified
individual for this position.

2. On May 12, the Feminist Majority Foundation will host the first East
Coast "Choose to Laugh, Laugh to Choose" comedy event to benefit the
Feminist Majority Foundation's National Clinic Defense Project. Comics from
both coasts are donating their talents, including Betsy Salkind, Rene Hicks,
Julie Goldman, Janine Di Tuilio, Carolyn May and Passion. Join the Feminist
Majority Foundation, Eleanor Smeal, and Peg Yorkin at The Improv in
Washington, DC for yet-more-proof-that-feminists-do-have-a-sense-of-humor.
Tickets are $100. For more information or to place an ad in the Joke
Program, contact the Feminist Majority Foundation Comedy Event Team at
