Notes

Abstract:
For the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program's Fall 2013 Intern Class. Merrill Mushroom describes her life as a lesbian feminist activist and the origins and history of the Womonwrites Southeast Lesbian Writers Conference. Mushroom touches on the systemic yet subtle use of sexist, racist, and otherwise oppressive language in popular culture, before moving on to the history of the Womonwrites Conference, an inclusive, leaderless collection of workshops, affinity groups, and open readings that meets annually in both the Spring and Fall.
