I want to thank East Hampton’s East End Women’s Alliance for honoring my lifetime of feminist work. That work spans nearly half a century. In this time, a visionary feminism managed to seriously challenge, if not transform, world consciousness.
Like many of us, I started out in 1967 and have never looked back. The work still drives me. 1967 was an easier year to “come out” as a feminist. It is much harder now. We had an opening in history and we rushed right through that door and almost instantly became Players in History.
