Tomorrow is last day to propose a panel for conference on lesbian lives in the 1970s

The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at CUNY (the City University of New York) is hosting a conference October 8-10 entitled, "In Amerika They Call Us Dykes: Lesbian Lives in the 1970s." Tomorrow is the last day to respond to their call for papers. I've submitted a proposal to speak on the emergence of the first legal issue specifically identified as lesbian: the right of a lesbian mother to leave a marriage and maintain custody of her children. I also hope to discuss my co-founding of and work with the DC Feminist Law Collective.

If you lived a lesbian life in the 70s, think about being part of the historical record that this conference will document. If you've studied lesbian life during that period, please come share what you know. Your proposal can be brief (500 words), so you've got time to submit it, even at this late date.
