Lee Lakeman on an Early Grassroots Women’s Movement Conference in Canada

This five and a half minute audio clip features Vancouver feminist Lee Lakeman talking about her experience in organizing a women’s movement conference that brought together 100 grassroots women from Woodstock, Ontario and the surrounding area in the early 1970s. In the course of this event, she said, “Things that were unspeakable became items on an agenda. … All of a sudden oppressed people have discourse, and have language, and have a way of communicating their experience to each other. And then there’s just power everywhere in the room.”
