This week on From the Vault continue to feature selections our favorite episodes of the past year:
Gloria Steinem – 1997 Kennedy Lecture Series
In this 1997 recording from the Kennedy Lecture Series at Ohio University, one of America’s best-known feminists, Gloria Steinem, explains the critical importance of patience and long-term goals for activists who have chosen to embrace the social and political struggles of feminism.
Les Guérillères: Feminist Radio Drama
First published in 1969 in France, translated into English in 1971, and brought to the airwaves in 1973 by the women at Pacifica’s WBAI in New York, this English adaptation of the widely-circulated feminist novel Les Guérillères is very likely the only one of its kind ever recorded; this recording has not been heard by the public ear since 1973.
