The Lesbian Testimony Podcast - Episode 14

The Lesbian Testimony Podcast is a project born out of the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimony to encourage greater engagement with lesbian oral records. Each week host Callie Hitchcock will talk to a donor of the archive about one of their submissions or talk to an oral historian involved in lesbian oral testimony.

“Women had only been able to buy houses in their own names for less than a handful of years. The fair credit act only really comes in in the early 1970s. The world that they imagined, where lesbians could carve out a life that was meaningful was so much smaller than the world that I live in because of the extreme homophobia that they encountered, because of still so many realities of sexism that legislation and societal change has really affected from 1976 over the past 40 years.” - Julie Enszer

For episode 14 we talked with Julie Enszer about her role as editor of the historic journal Sinister Wisdom and the changing roles of politics throughout the years of its publication.
