Helene Rosenbluth talks with two women, Amanda and Jane, from Melbourne, Australia about the conditions for lesbians in their country: access to employment, the social and political life of lesbians vis-a-vis gay men in Australia, and the history of anti-gay laws in the country. Part two of this recording contains a discussion with women in Japan about what it's like to be a lesbian there. The Japanese women interviewed are not identified. Recorded in 1976 when Holly Near, Amy Horowitz, and Sally Savitz went to an anti-nuke conference in Japan. Technical quality for this second half-hour of the program is poor but audible. Recorded in Japan on interior mike of low-quality cassette recorder. Leslie Lee and Catherine Stifter provided additional production work.
