The Whorer had a great time at Con Nooga this weekend. When Feminists Attack: Women and Horror Films had a great turnout and produced some great conversation. If interested:
Just to recap: We did a presentation celebrating Women in Horror Recognition Month at Chattanooga, Tennessee’s Con Nooga. While we will not be dedicating an entire podcast episode to this particular con, we will take some time to talk about our overall experiences at the end of next week’s episode on Beyond the Black Rainbow.
