THE SHULAMITH FIRESTONE WOMEN'S LIBERATION

MEMORIAL CONFERENCE ON WHAT IS TO BE DONE

Attendance and enthusiasm at a conference that Redstockings held this fall in New York City marking a year's anniversary since the death of Shulamith Firestone, one of the Redstockings's founders, demonstrated that women are very interested in “big picture” questions about how and why women are oppressed and how the ways these questions are answered influence our liberation strategies. 86 women registered for and attended the conference. The women who came were women of color, white, young and old, and women from across the US and Canada. The entire conference was videotaped and we are working to make it accessible.

Veteran 1960s radical feminists Ti-Grace Atkinson and Kathie Sarachild of Redstockings spoke on Radical Provocations, Feminist Futures & Feminist Pasts on March 26 and 27, 2013 at Arizona State in Phoenix, Arizona.

Kathie Sarachild's talk "Feminist Revolution: Toward a Science of Women's Freedom" can be seen, including the question and answer period, by clicking here. Unfortunately, the video of Ti-Grace Atkinson's talk had technical difficulties and we cannot provide it. Redstockings hopes to be soon making the written version available.

WOMEN AND THE DANISH NATIONAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM

Reprint of Danish government articles on health care in Denmark and the history of the Danish Redstockings. Added comments by Redstockings of the U.S.A.
8 1/2 X 7 booklet, 28 pages.

From Redstockings' 1987 introduction to Women and the Danish National Healthcare System:
"As Denmark took ideas from the American Women's Liberation Movement, the United States now has to take ideas from Denmark and the many other countries that have national health care systems. We are in a crisis of astronomical health care costs and poor results in terms of a healthy nation of people ... A system of free quality health care for all ... will bring much needed relief, and for women in particular, a little more of a base, a springboard toward more and more independence, a greater social sharing of the costs of child [and all family care], without which the goal of fully equal relations with men cannot be finally achieved."

REDSTOCKINGS' FIRST ACTION FOR
NATIONAL HEALTH CARE IN THE U.S.
:
A consciousness-raising workshop at a conference for devising a national health care system, May 16, 1987, Chevy Chase, Md.

"Consciousness-raising has proved to be a powerful tool both for the learning of the `organizers' and the learning of those whom they are organizing...it offers enormous promise of help in popularizing the national health care issue and more quickly winning this wonderful advance for the masses of people in the United Sates and this basic building block of women's liberation."
