June 30, 2014: Lesbians Changing the World

Our Lesbian She-roes, Our Fore Mothers

Lorraine Hansberry
On this week's show, we'll 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 social welfare activist Jane Addams and playwright Lorraine Hansberry were members 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.

Get MP3 or listen below. 24:59 min.

Also on this show: Clinic Buffer zones Are Not the Answer and Susan Chacin and Elana Dykewomon discuss the upcoming OLOC national gathering, "Lesbian Activism Changing the World."
