BlogHer closing keynotes are often focused on sending you back to your keyboards, ready to make some noise, make a living, and/or make a difference, just making the most of your very own "personal printing press," your blogs. 2011 is no different. If you want to get fired up about how women are represented by the media and in the making of media, there are few folks more qualified to strike the match than Emmy-Award winning Carol Jenkins, former head of the Women's Media Center, Fatemeh Fakhraie, founder of Muslimah Media Watch, and Ricki Lake... who we've all watched grow up from John Waters' non-traditional ingenue to longtime talk show host to documentary film maker. BlogHer co-founder Lisa Stone will moderate the interactive conversation with three impassioned and activist women.
