Sinister Wisdom 43/44: The 15th Anniversary Retrospective

The 15th Anniversary Retrospective

Sinister Wisdom 43/44: The 15th Anniversary Retrospective is a distillation of our part in the lesbian and women's movements in the United States over the last fifteen years. This issue is a monument to our work: solid, strong, fixed in place. This issue is a marker of our movement: small and bright, bobbing in a difficult channel, sometimes obscured by waves and weather, showing direction. We hope this Retrospective will serve both lesbians who have been active in our movements for the last twenty years and new generations just getting started.
