Atkinson Tapes

This series of audio recordings is from a workshop led by Ti Grace Atkinson at the New York chapter of the DOB. The ten tapes covered several different meetings in chronological order, and were donated to the Daughters of Bilitis Video Project by Ruth Simpson. Atkinson was a politically minded feminist activist who wrote pamphlets such as "The Institution of Sexual Intercourse" and "Radical Feminism" throughout the 1960s and '70s. Her best known book is Amazon Odyssey (1974). She has also worked in academia.
