Last night I was excited to attend a dinner as part of the Women’s Information Network (WIN) Women Opening Doors for Women event. The topic of our group dinner was Netroots: Women & the Internet Movement, all about the growing community of women doing progressive online work. Hey, that’s what I do! What was so great about the dinner (aside from the amazing food spread and the special cocktail) was being surrounded by women who work in technology for a lot of great causes. There was networking, venting, some commiserating, and a great show of support for each other.
I asked the willing to share their thoughts towards the end of the evening. And as you’ll notice from the background noise, there was a lot of fun had by all. So, take a look at what some of these great progressive women have to say. It was great to spend some time with peers, with different skills and experience, brought together by a desire to kick ass online. Many thanks to all of you fantastic ladies who shared your thoughs for this video and at the dinner.

Other titles i came up with were “when men close a door women open a WINdow edition” (get it? WIN, window?) and “Sisters are Doing for the Internet Edition.” See? Those suck even worse.
