Women’s Magazine: Lesbian Activism Past and Present – June 30, 2014

Listen Download | copy rss link

We listen to part of a herstory event organized by Old Lesbians Organizing for Change honoring lesbian she-roes of the past. Everyone knows about Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, but how many of us knew Lorraine Hansberry was a member of the club? And many people may not even know the name Frances Perkins at all, even though we have her to thank for Medicare and Social Security.

We’ll also speak with Elana Dykewoman and Susan Chacin about the upcoming OLOC national gathering, coming up in Oakland July 23-27 and including events for all ages.
