Why We Need a Good Feminist Rant

Why We Need a Good Feminist Rant

Discrimination is so deeply imbedded in U.S. Culture few of us notice from one day to the next. Even those of us who are experiencing it. Maybe we notice the headlines that blare at us when so many young Black men in a row are killed by police officers and their communities erupt in impotent […]

NOW OPEN! SCARLET CITY ESPRESSO BAR 3960 Adeline St. in Emeryville.

Shedding Couture

Females go through life shedding our clothes, ecdysiasts or not.  We add and subtract clothes usually based on the vagaries of the male-dominated design industry, which set the standards for the images we absorb through television and films.  These ‘ideals’ are then indiscriminately reinforced by our family and friends.  And that is not to mention […]

What Feminism Means to Me

Being a Feminist has definitely changed meaning for me over the years.  I started off being a liberal feminist, but I always had radical leanings.  During the 90’s, when I was in my 20’s, the movie “I Shot Andy Warhol” came out, and my bandmates and I really got into S.C.U.M. and sort of worshipped […]

On Race and Gender

On Race and Gender

I met some friends this morning at a breakfast restaurant in Berkeley I had been to once before. It’s a delightful little place with high quality dishes and what appears to be a somewhat high-end clientele, normally a place I really enjoy patronizing, as I’m a bit of a foodie. The first time I noticed […]

Lesbian History – DYKE A Quarterly

Lesbian History – DYKE A Quarterly

Penny House and I had been best friends since we were four years old. It was 1975, we were in our mid-twenties, had just recently come out, and were ready to take on the world. All over the United States Lesbians were getting together to make culture – music, theater, art, film, poetry and all […]

Lesbian Going All the Way – Part 3

Lesbian Going All the Way  – Part 3

I am 63 today and I am involved in a passionate relationship with a 41-year old woman. Being a lesbian is still about holding a space for woman-loving in my personal and public life. It is still about the heady first kiss-this time between two women on a moonlit Hebridean beach. It is about the […]

What Happened to the Women’s Movement?

What Happened to the Women’s Movement?

Is this really what our generation had in mind when they marched in the streets, sat in doorways and rotundas, picketed and posted handbills – to have a generation of women who became politicians wanting to take away women’s rights and destroy the economic and social equalities we’ve gained over the last 40 years? I […]

Lesbian: Going All the Way – Part 2

Lesbian: Going All the Way – Part 2

When I came out in the sixties, “coming out” meant reinventing the world. It meant blowing a hole in the constricting walls of homophobia in my personal life, in my culture and in American politics by living out my woman-loving ways each day. It meant clearing a new and shining path in the world with […]

Lesbian: Going All The Way – Part 1

Lesbian: Going All The Way – Part 1

By the time I reached my 15th birthday, I was old. I smoked unfiltered Camel cigarettes and I had had sex with most of the boys in the neighborhood including my younger brother. I had mastered the public transport system so I could escape the stifling little town I lived in. Early every Saturday morning […]
