In this interview, Sallie Harrison describes the beginnings of the women’s movement in Gainesville. Starting with her work in the presidential campaign of George McGovern, who was defeat by Richard Nixon in 1972, Harrison describes the connections between the women’s movement and the civil rights movement, her work to establish a rape crisis center and women’s health center in Gainesville and her daughter’s impact on her activism. Her powerful story captures the energy, optimism and courage of Gainesville’s first generation of radical women’s activists.
