women, copying, sharing
Today’s meeting about copyright and copying at Bergen Kunsthall (“deledagen”) has been critisised for only having male presenters (in the BB mailing list today, archives are subscribers only). The organisers answer that they asked two women who couldn’t come, and they pull the standard line, you know, “Vi kan ikke /lage/ kvinnelige debattanter, de mÂ selv stille opp.” (We can’t /make/ female debaters, they have to turn up themselves.) So knowing that it is hard as an organiser or editor to find and catch contributors from outside of one’s own circle, I’m trying to think which women in Norway should have been asked. Any suggestions?
