    History

    According to its statement of purpose, the Jewish Feminist Conference (held in 1982 and 1983 in the San Francisco area) asked, "Why is this conference different from all other conferences? This conference is being organized by Jewish lesbians and Jewish feminists...For many of us the dynamic of being Jewish and lesbian has fueled our energy and provided the impetus for our work."

    Scope and Content

    The Jewish Feminist Conference collection contains documents relating to the planning of two San Francisco area conferences, one held in 1982 and the other in 1983, and audio tapes from the conference workshops. Also included in the collection are flyers and pamphlets from other Jewish, feminist, and lesbian organizations and events both in California and outside of California. The conference materials contain statements on such topics as anti-Semitism, racism, ageism, class and fat oppression, disability, and differing cultures within Judaism.

    Organization and Arrangement

    Materials about the conferences are arranged at the beginning of the collection, followed by materials documenting other organizations' programs and activism. Audiovisual materials about the conference are arranged in box 2.
