Over 100 sessions will be offered. Among the 500 presenters will be Meg Christian, Liz Farley, Shere Hite Florence Howe, Audre Lorde, Elaine Reuben, Catherine Stimpson and Sheila Tobias. Room and board (double occupancy) is available in the University of Kansas dormitories for $70 for four nights (Wednesday through Sunday), or $35 for Friday and Saturday nights.
