Sinister Wisdom 66: Lesbians and Activism

Lesbians and Activism

Sinister Wisdom 66: Lesbians and Activism shows that activism does not only consist of demonstrations, picket lines, protests, street theater, sit-ins and public hearings, but also includes protest songs, political art, resistance writings, radical teaching, private rebellions and much more. Some of us can no longer walk in the streets, but we can write articles and poetry, give speeches, compose music, create art, and/or inspire others. This issue of Sinister Wisdom contains many acts of activism.
